If the geranium has wilted: how to quickly save the flower

How to fertilize geraniums

Geraniums are a popular and rather undemanding plant, but temperature fluctuations, drafts, and improper humidity can lead to unpleasant consequences. The flower will begin to dry and wilt if not properly cared for.

Geraniums thrive in sunlight, so they grow well on window sills. Transplantation is only carried out if necessary, when the roots become too cramped in the container. OBOZREVATEL offers a simple recipe for an effective fertilizer that will help you quickly save the flower.

If you notice that the plant looks "tired", the flowers have dropped or fallen off, and the leaves have begun to turn yellow, you need to take immediate rescue measures.

Experts suggest that an effective fertilizer is a solution based on regular sugar. The main condition is that the water should be sufficiently infused.

Take four glasses of water and leave it for 8 to 24 hours (depending on the quality). Carefully pour the water into a container, leaving the sediment at the bottom of the glasses. Then add 2 tablespoons of sugar. Stir it until it dissolves completely and pour it onto the geraniums at the root.

Experts promise that you will notice positive changes in 48 hours.

If the geranium has wilted: how to quickly save the flower

In general, during the growing season, it is necessary to provide the plant with abundant watering, regularly checking the condition of the top layer of the soil. However, in winter, watering should be significantly reduced.

For fertilizing (best done twice a month from April to November), you can use complex mineral fertilizers.

In the fall, geraniums need pruning. You need to shorten all the stems and leave 6-7 leaf blades. During the growing season, the plant grows normally at room temperature, but during the dormant period, the optimum air temperature should be about 15 degrees.
