2. Watering: The soil is completely dry before watering
Before we water the hyacinths, we need to observe the soil first. Water only if the soil looks very dry, no need to water if the soil is wet.
And it should be thoroughly watered at one time. In the process of watering, do not pour water directly on the sphere or leaves of the plant. It is best to water along the edge of the pot soil, which can prevent the plants from getting moldy and the watering will be more thorough.
3. Fertilization: phosphorus and potassium fertilizer once a month
If it is a hydroponic hyacinth, you only need to inject the nutrient solution. As for soil cultivation, phosphorus and potassium fertilizers need to be applied once a month to promote more beautiful flowers of hyacinths.
Of course, when planting hyacinths in winter, it is necessary to control the frequency and quantity of fertilization. Once the temperature is lower than 12 degrees Celsius, it is not suitable to fertilize. Low-temperature fertilization will cause great damage to the plants, which should be noted.
4.The temperature: keep 7-10 degrees Celsius
Hyacinths are more suitable for growing in an environment of 7-10 degrees Celsius. If you want hyacinths to bloom as soon as possible, it is best to keep the temperature above 16 degrees, which will help hyacinths to bloom beautiful flowers earlier.
