Since ancient times, it has been known that the Moon has a serious effect on plants, on the process of their growth, development, as well as their susceptibility to external environmental factors. The biosphere of the Earth is influenced by the gravitational field of the Moon, therefore the magnetic field of the planet is always changing, which in turn affects both people and plants. Florists in their activities must take into account all these factors.
- Waxing Crescent
- Aging moon
- Full moon and new moon
Fluids on Earth are in direct contact with the Moon. During hot flashes, the level of fluid in the tissues in the body of people increases, so a person feels active, the emotional level rises. In plants during this period, an ascending type of sap flow occurs. During low tide, the opposite is true.
There are several main lunar phases, each of which has its own characteristics. In order to grow a beautiful flower, all phases must be taken into account:
- Waxing Crescent
- waning moon
- full moon
- new moon
The lunar calendar for violets involves the study of all phases, each of which has its own characteristics. The period from New Moon to Full Moon is called the waxing moon.
During this period, all activity and fluid inside the plants is directed upward, from the roots to the stems. This time is characterized by the rapid and intensive growth of the part of the plant, which is located above the ground. If a violet is planted at this time, then the development and growth of its aboveground part will be rapid and intense.
If at this time some of the leaves are cut off, it will activate new greens for growth. It is not recommended to carry out the budding process at this time, since during the growing moon, the roots practically do not react in any way to the damage they inflict. It is worth paying close attention to the plants that have been transplanted, since the activity of the roots is at a low level, and it is important for the violet to receive a certain amount of nutrients.
During the waxing moon period, it is recommended:
- plant new violets
- transplant plants from one place to another, but under close supervision
- carry out the process of processing and loosening the land
- fertilize the earth with minerals, since violets need constant additional feeding
During this period, all plants need a lot of water. This period is the best time to remove stepchildren, which are the main reason for the slowdown in the normal growth and development of the flower.
The next phase is called the waning or aging moon phase. During this period, all the activity and liquid that is in the plants is directed from the periphery to the center, from the stems to the roots. The pressure level of the underground part of the violet increases.
By their nature, the roots of a plant such as a violet are much thinner than the aerial part. Therefore, if during this period any damage is caused to the roots of the plant, this can provoke serious problems, up to the death of the flower. During the waning moon, the development of the aboveground part of the plant slows down, but the underground parts, on the contrary, develop quite actively.
The outer part of the violet at this time passively reacts to any external damage. The violet, which will be planted during the waning moon, is already programmed for active growth of the root system.
Often, these flowers have a small number of leaves and flowers that die quickly. At this time, you can transplant violets without fear for their further vital activity, since the flower will take root for sure. This period is characterized by less watering of plants, in contrast to the growing moon. But if you carry out the process of organic feeding, then the plant will develop much better in the future, there will be more flowers.
Full moon and new moon
This phase lasts three days. This is the best time to fertilize the soil for violets, to loosen it. Pruning of plants is not recommended during this period.
This phase, like the previous one, lasts three days. It is in these three that it is not recommended categorically not to make any plant transplants, plant new violets, loosen and fertilize the ground around the flower.
You can remove dried and damaged leaves one day before the new moon and the day after. On the day of the New Moon itself, it is not recommended to carry out any manipulations with the plants, only watering in moderation. This time is given to plants so that they gain vitality and energy.
Any plant lives in these cycles, so it is worth considering all the features in order to grow a healthy and beautiful flower. But besides this, do not forget that the violet is a rather whimsical plant, therefore its vital activity also depends on what kind of environment it grows in.
Violet is a plant that needs feeding and moderate watering, but on the days of the growing moon, it is necessary to slightly increase the water level, then all this will only benefit the plant. In order for the violet to bloom profusely, it is necessary to add a small amount of phosphorus to the soil.
