The fuchsia, Fuchsia Magellanica, is a small shrub and very interesting that stands out above all for its beautiful flowering. Although it is a plant that is grown mainly outdoors it can also grow in indoor. Although to do this you must have an excellent lighting and a cool environment in the winter. To grow indoors is often resort to the Fuchsia triphylla , which gives much better result in these conditions.
To play our fuchsia we may need to take cuttings semileñosos, that is to say those that are taken of soft wood. Plus some more elements that we relate to you:
- a sharp knife
- hormone enraizante powder
- a terra-cotta pot small
- seedlings warm bed
We will use the stems more healthy and cut off 7 cm of the top. We will use a very sharp knife and even then it is more sanitize it previously with a chlorine solution. Choose stems that have no flowers or if they had the will remove it.
Remove the lower leaves with a clean cut. The cuttings must be only one or two pairs of leaves at the upper end of each of them.
We introduce the cut ends of the cuttings in the hormone powder enraizante to increase the likelihood that the stems produce roots. Remove any excess dust to leave a thin layer on each of the cuttings.
Fill a terra-cotta pot small with a substrate for cuttings and we put the our in the contour of the same. Watered with care and we put our pot in a warm place. If we have a hotbed of warm bed will be perfect or a mat to hot to germinate seeds. When the cuttings have rooted successfully we will be able to transplant each one to a pot.
