Seed Planting Tips Guide – Seed planting tips guide the results of grafting or cuttings, at first glance it looks easy because see rooting plants are already strong enough. But with the care of a potluck is certainly going to make maximum and even no growth can be very susceptible to pests and diseases. For that, there are a few things to note in order to plant seed can remain healthy until quickly bear fruit. Here are a few seed planting tips guide you can try to get the maximum plant:

Seed planting tips guide:

1. The planting Hole
Move the seedlings into the planting hole, it is done when the seeds are already reaching high around 0.5 – 1.5 metres. This difference also affects the width of the planting hole to be created. For seedlings with a height of 0.5 meters, make a hole for planting with a size of 50x50x50 cm, 1 meter high seedlings require the planting hole size 75x75x75 cm and 1.5 metres tall seedlings require the planting hole size 100x100x100 cm. before inserting seedlings into the hole, the hole in advance clear of rocks or garbage, then insert the form of phosphate Rock fertilizers Phosphat (RP), Triple Super Phosphat (TSP) or Super Phosphat 36 (SP36) are useful to make stronger root growth. Enter the 100 grams of plant seedlings to 322.7 phosphate 0.5 metres, 150 grams to 1 metre-tall seedlings and 200 grams to 1.5 metres tall seedlings. Next, remove the plastic poly bag on your seeds carefully and insert the seedling into the hole for planting. (Read more – 5 Caring for Houseplants Guide)

2. Land Cover
To close the hole planting, use a mixture of manure with the land that will be used to close the hole. We recommend using the loose soil to make rooting can grow freely. You can use the other land that is not from the dugouts in advance if reasonably less good for planting media. For better growth again, the mixture can consist of loose soil, manure fertilizer and phosphate are stirred. Put the mixture the neck limits to as high as planted, and then compress the soil around it so that the seeds are not tilted. This compaction will not make the ground inside becomes solid, because the soil mixture loose enough already and is suitable for plant growth.

3. soil pH Levels
The levels of acidity in the soil greatly affects plant growth. Acid soils i.e. land with low pH (pH < 7), having a content of aluminum (Al), iron (Fe) and Manganese (Mn) are pretty much so it can poison crops as well as binding the elements indispensable nutrient plants such as phosphorus (P), potassium (K), Magnesium (Mg), molybdenum (Mo) and Sulfur (S). Soil that is alkaline or high pH levels (pH > 7), resulting in a lot of phosphorus bound to Calcium (Ca) and micro elements Molybdenum (Mo) becomes very much. If so, Mo can also poison the plant so as to neutralize the pH levels of the soil is very necessary so that the nutrient elements can more easily soluble in water and can be absorbed by plants. To neutralize the pH of acidic soils, liming can use (sprinkling lime dolomite into the ground), while for the alkaline soil pH, could be done by the addition of sulfur (S).

4. Watering
Watering on plants is very common in caring for plants. However, to get the maximum results, quality and quantity of water is very noteworthy.

To water quality, the use of well water is the best way because it contains substances that are badly needed by the plant. If you use tap water or rain water, endapkan used to be during the 12-14 hours before use, because the water usually contains other substances, such as chlorine is not good for the plants. For the use of river water, may give good results, but if the water has not yet been secured, clean, best avoided because it was feared the waste can thus contain poison plants.

Quantity of watering can be determined, depending on the type of plants and make sure the water flows in all parts of the plants, especially their foliage to appear fresh and launch the process of photosynthesis. For the type of plants that can live indoors, usually do not require a lot of water because of evaporation in a room less than plants that are outdoors. Best watering time is the moment the morning before 09.00 and 16.00 o’clock in the afternoon after.

5. Protective Rods
Plants are planted directly in the ground without the use of pot, usually prone trampled by human beings as well as animals that pass through. Give a fence on a plant seed that has not been too great should be done to reduce risks. Use a fence made of wood or bamboo can be an option for a temporary fence, until the plant is big enough already and is reasonably secure from the problem.

6. Fertilization
Fertilization in plants is very necessary. Although manure has been used to mix planting medium, the use of other organic fertilizers also needed to get good results. You can provide as much as 25 grams of NPK fertilizers with a comparison of 15:15:15 provided every 4 months up to 2 years old plants. Later, around the third year and so on you could add the quantity fertilizer up to as much as 100 grams. Way of fertilizing plants can be done by immersing the fertilizer as deep as 10 cm into the embed media, then flush to taste.

7. Pest control and Weed
The pest is an animal that can damage the growth of plants, either directly or indirectly. Types of vermin including worms, fruit flies, mice, gangsir, walang sangit, pest and others. To tackle the pest could use chemical or biological way.

Chemically can use insecticides (pest insects) or larvasida (pest). Biological way is to use the pest predators, such as pest artona butterflies for instance, can be eradicated with a Taser, or bee lice jump that can be pests in ants with berantas rang rang. In addition, You can place the Basil plants or Cosmos caudatus around the plant because most pests don’t like the strong scent emitted by the plant.

Weed is a plant pest that can also damage the plant growth is slowly but inflicting considerable losses. Weeds compete with the crop damage is strong to take the nutrient elements, sunlight, space, air and water. Some examples include the grass weed puzzles or plant a nail-pakuan. For the eradication of weeds, can be done by manual, i.e. plucking weeds. However, if the plants have very much quantity, use the chemical also can be done by spraying herbicides (weed) isoprofil amines with active ingredient glyphosate, such as RoundUp, SunUp, Basmilang and Rambo mixed herbicides with the active ingredient 2, 4 d Amine, such as Lindomin and DMA6.

8. Trimming
Trimming on the branches of the plant, not only to make the appearance look more tidy. In this way could also break the pest cycle, thus making the plant more awake from pest attack. Other benefits could also trigger growth of new flowers will become the future fruit.

9. Repotting
Repotting is the process of changing of the pot and planting media, particularly at the plant in a pot (Tabulampot). This needs to be done to replace the nutrient elements have been exhausted as well as useful to restore the kegemburan on the planting medium, because the ground is too dense can make the pH levels of the soil the more acidic and is not good for the health of the plant. The roots have filled the pot also can reduce the planting space so it will inhibit its growth. On the type of annual plant, we recommend that you do the repotting every 9 or 12 months, whereas in the seasonal crop can be done every 3 or 4 months. We recommend that you do this when repotting process in the afternoon, where the weather was enough shade in order to reduce the evaporation of excess.

Caring for a newly purchased plant seed is very easy and fun if we know how to treat it properly. And keep in mind, to get the maximum plant, we recommend that you do not use seed originating from seeds, but use the seeds originating from the Green, cuttings or grafting. So the tips caring for plants, follow the steps above! Your plants will undoubtedly always be healthy and developing normally. Good luck! (Read more – 10 Easy Care Plants for Garden)
