Because of its special tree shape, the stem base can be processed into different shapes, and the meaning of the name is particularly good, it is often used as an indoor foliage plant and is widely cultivated. But some florists often raise the fortune tree to die when they cultivate the fortune tree. What is the reason for this? How should we deal with it?
The Fortune tree is native to the tropics and likes full sunshine and high temperature. It grows quickly when sunshine, temperature and moisture are sufficient. But it is also very resistant to negatives, and it can grow well in any place indoors in the short term. However, every 10 to 20 days, the fortune tree should be moved to an outdoor sunny place for a period of time, otherwise the leaves will be too slender. It is best to place it in a place with bright scattered light.
The suitable temperature for the growth of the Pachira is 15 to 30 degrees. In winter, proper attention should be paid to heat preservation. Low temperature may cause leaf fall.
Watering is the key content of the fortune tree maintenance. In summer, when it grows vigorously, it absorbs more water. It needs to be watered once every 2 to 3 days. If it is in the open air, it needs to be watered 1 to 2 times a day. But watering is not as much as possible. It is also necessary to grasp the principle of drying and watering thoroughly, so that there is an intermittent time for the soil to dry and wet.
The Fortune Tree grows rapidly, and under the condition of good fertilizer and water, it can grow about 1 meter per year. Therefore, it must be pruned frequently to maintain a good tree shape. When pruning, the method of flat cutting is mostly adopted, but it can also be carried out according to personal requirements. Regardless of the thickness of the pruned branches, as long as they have been lignified, they can be cut into 20 to 30 cm long cuttings and inserted into flower pots for reproduction. However, cuttings that survive are generally not easy to grow into a tree shape with an enlarged stem base.
