Cultivation method of thorn apple (Datura stramonium) in autumn

1. Sufficient light

Thorn apple (Datura stramonium) likes to grow in plenty of sunshine.

The autumn sun is not particularly strong, so we can place it in the sun and maintain it carefully.

If it lacks light in autumn, it will affect the normal growth of the plant, and may even make the plant grow in vain, thus losing the color of the leaves of thorn apple (Datura stramonium).

2. Water and fertilizer management

Thorn apple (Datura stramonium) has certain cold resistance.

In general, we must control the amount of water we irrigate in the process of planting in autumn.

If the climate gradually cools down, we can reduce the amount of water.

In the process of growing in autumn, we also need to apply a large amount of nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium compound fertilizer for maintenance.

3. Turning basin for soil

In fact, in autumn, we must turn over the basin and change the soil in time for maintenance.

In autumn, we need to take the plants out of the pot soil.

We need to select larger containers and use the mixture of pastoral soil, river sand and organic fertilizer for new basin soil maintenance, so that the basin soil can provide nutrients in time.

4. Pruning treatment

In fact, when thorn apple (Datura stramonium) grows in autumn, its branches and leaves can also be properly trimmed.

We first cut off the dead branches, old branches and diseased branches and leaves of the plant in time.

Then we have to cut off the lush part of the plant.

This can make the plant grow better.

Moreover, the pruned branches can also be used for cutting propagation.
