3 tips for maintaining Fuchsia in winter

Hardy Fuchsia, also known as the lantern flower, has a peculiar shape. When it is in full bloom, clusters of bright flowers are hung upside down, like a hanging colored chandelier or a string of wind chimes. It is very unique and gorgeous. It can not only be viewed in potted plants, but also be suspended on balconies, verandahs and other places. Many flower friends like potted plants to decorate balconies, windowsills, study, etc. when they bloom, they really have a special flavor. But how to maintain hardy Fuchsia in winter so that she can survive the winter? Here is a summary of 3 maintenance skills, let’s have a look.

1.Suitable temperature

Because hardy Fuchsia likes cool and humid semi shade environment, and the most suitable growth temperature is 10-28 degrees.

The summer temperature should not exceed 31 ℃. If the temperature is higher than 34 ℃, hardy Fuchsia will easily wither and die.

Therefore, in winter maintenance, we should pay special attention not to let the temperature be too high or too low. I suggest that proper ventilation and proper indoor temperature should be maintained to make hardy Fuchsia survive the winter smoothly. In winter, I suggest that the culture temperature should not be lower than 5 ℃, otherwise it will cause freezing damage, so it is better to take insulation measures in time.

2.Adequate light

Hardy Fuchsia is very fond of light, and in different seasons, the demand for light is also different.

Generally, in winter and early spring, and in late autumn, full sunlight is required, and in early summer and early autumn, it is necessary to shade appropriately.

Therefore, I suggest that in the process of maintaining hardy Fuchsia, we must pay attention to ensure that there is sufficient light, so that it can grow better, because light can make hardy Fuchsia grow poorly, which is not conducive to flowering, and even difficult to survive the winter.

3.Rational fertilization hardy Fuchsia is a kind of flower with long flowering period

It is easy to burst the pot when it blooms, and it grows faster and has more flowering times, which will consume a lot of nutrients. Therefore, we need to fertilize reasonably and supplement nutrients. Especially in the growth period, I suggest that we should apply thin cake fertilizer once every 10 days.

At the flowering stage, it is necessary to apply a little liquid fertilizer with more phosphorus and potassium content. It should be noted that the pot soil should be dry before fertilization, and spray water once with a fine nozzle after fertilization, so as to prevent the leaves from rotting due to sticking fertilizer and water. To autumn and winter period, you can increase the amount of fertilizer, so that it can continue to bloom.
