The nuances of growing a hybrid
The seeds of the Sylvester hybrid are first grown at home for seedlings. For the shoots to grow strong and strong, there is no need to sow seeds too early. The usual sowing date is the second decade of March. The seedlings planted in February will be weak, too elongated, therefore more susceptible to various fungal and viral diseases.
Seed germination is about 94%. The picking of seedlings is carried out in the phase of 3 - 4 permanent leaves. After 1.5 months, the grown seedlings are planted in a greenhouse. During cultivation in room conditions, seedlings are usually fed 2 - 3 times with complex mineral fertilizers.
In the greenhouse, as well as in the room where the seedlings were grown, the temperature is maintained at about 23 ° C. The main thing is that condensation does not settle in a closed ground, which usually leads to the development of various fungal diseases in plants. To avoid a problem, it is recommended to regularly ventilate the greenhouse.
