Gorgeous flower: camellia at home

Lighting: bush likes a lot of sun, but the light day should last no more than 13 hours for it. Then create a “night” for the flower, obscuring the light source. This will help the proper development of the buds.
Temperature: during the season of growing and flowering, it is best to maintain a stable temperature near 17 °C, create a colder climate regime (6-8 °C) and with the arrival of cold (November-January). At the same time reduce watering to a reasonable level.


Watering: is based on moderation. Any case, do not let the ground dry up. Amid the formation of floret buds (late July), you should reduce watering. To humidify the air around the flower, it can be sprayed with warmish water and put on a tray with pebbles or gravel.


Feeding: it starts with the beginning of new growth. It is best to fertilise camellias every day, alternating compositions for flowers and specific solutions for roses. You should stop fertilising at the end of July, with the advent of new buds.


Transplanting: takes place in a strictly defined period of time once a year. This should be done immediately after flowering (until the middle of July).
