Cultivated Soil For Sowing
Greetings to all Adenium obesum lovers!
There is one thing that I would like to share, it's about cultivated soil, the kind of soil that you might buy from the gardening shop, it is soft and loose, and when cultivated soil is too soft it will cause soil decline when you water the seeds, at the same time, if the seeds are smaller, it will be easy to sink deeply and affect germination. Besides, when you use the cultivated soil you bought after 2-3 months, the cultivated soil with 100% full originally will disappear 25%, even 50%, besides, this cultivated soil is bad for plants, it's a kind of mixed with animal manures & wood chips and little sand, and it has lots of germs, in this case, if you don't move the young plants (2~3 month-old) to bigger planting pots in time, the bottom of cultivated soil will become muddy and it will cause the roots of younger plants decay. In the end, the plants will die.
By the way, if you use this kind of cultivated soil for sowing, we suggest that you need to cover the layer of plastic wrap on the planting tray to make the germination rate steady.
