How does carnegiea gigantea (saguaro) breed fast?

The cutting propagation of carnegiea gigantea (saguaro) is the fastest.

Note: Carnegiea gigantea is commonly known as Saguaro.

For carnegiea gigantea (saguaro), a plant that grows very rapidly, how to reproduce quickly has naturally become a matter of great concern to flower lovers.

Some people say that beheading is the fastest, but others believe that cutting is the fastest.

In fact, the latter must be faster.

At this time, because of the beheading breeding of carnegiea gigantea (saguaro), some varieties are not suitable.

Once some varieties are beheaded, they will die.

1. Cutting propagation of carnegiea gigantea (saguaro) is fast

(1) Spring is better

The cutting propagation of carnegiea gigantea (saguaro) was the fastest.

If we give cutting propagation to carnegiea gigantea (saguaro), it is most suitable for us to choose between April and may in spring.

Because the climate is very warm at this time, it is more suitable for the wound recovery of carnegiea gigantea (saguaro) during cutting, and is conducive to its growth.

(2) Cutting matrix

Cutting matrix is an important basis for determining the success of carnegiea gigantea (saguaro) cutting.

We generally choose vermiculite, perlite and so on.

Family configuration can be prepared by selecting 4 parts of coarse river sand, 3 parts of loam, 2 parts of rotten leaves and 1 part of hull ash.

(3) Select cuttings

We cut 1 ~ 2 sections with a knife on the robust carnegiea gigantea (saguaro).

We must pay attention to keep the integrity of the parent plant type when cutting.

We should also note that the knife should be disinfected before use.

(4) Place for a week

We will smear a little sulfur or charcoal powder on the cut incision of carnegiea gigantea (saguaro).

We put it in a cool place for 5 ~ 7 days.

After the wound is dry and the stem flesh begins to shrink, we will lay it flat on the substrate.

(5) Start cutting

We buried the dried cuttings in a clean and moist substrate.

The cutting depth is 1 / 4 of its length.

If the cuttings are too long, we can bury more parts.

It began to take root about a week after cutting.

We can water it in ten days.

(6) Transplanting upper basin

Generally, we can transplant carnegiea gigantea (saguaro) into pots after one month.

We can only use the earth basin with good air permeability.

Before planting, we should soak the soil basin in water and keep it wet.

Then we put carnegiea gigantea (saguaro) in the center, and it should not be too deep.

2. Maintenance points after cutting of carnegiea gigantea (saguaro)

(1) Watering

Do not water carnegiea gigantea (saguaro) just after cutting.

Generally, we wait until 7 ~ 10 days before watering.

And we should pay attention to keep the basin soil moist.

This is conducive to the growth of rhizomes, but remember not to accumulate water.

(2) Pay attention to ventilation

Carnegiea gigantea (saguaro) has been in an airless environment for a long time, which is prone to diseases and pests, especially for carnegiea gigantea (saguaro) just after cutting.

If you do not pay attention to ventilation, its roots will not grow well.

(3) No fertilizer

For carnegiea gigantea (saguaro) just after cutting, we don’t need to fertilize.

At this time, the roots of carnegiea gigantea (saguaro) do not grow to normal shape. If we apply fertilizer rashly, it may burn the roots of carnegiea gigantea (saguaro) and die.

Conclusion: through the above introduction, I believe everyone knows the fast cutting propagation of carnegiea gigantea (saguaro) and the key points of post cutting maintenance of carnegiea gigantea (saguaro).

I hope you can cut a strong carnegiea gigantea (saguaro)!
