The leaves of spring grass do not roll up, which is caused by many reasons, such as soil compaction, lack of fertilizer, insufficient light, too much watering, too large temperature difference and so on. Maintenance and management should be done well, loose and well-drained slightly acidic soil should be replaced, base fertilizer should be mixed in planting, topdressing should be done in time in later growth, sunshine should be seen more in normal growth period, reasonable watering should be paid attention to, water accumulation should not be produced, and temperature difference between day and night should be controlled within 10 C.

1. Soil mixing method

1. It likes acidic, loose soil with good air permeability. When it is prepared, one part of perlite, one part of vermiculite and four parts of turfy soil can be mixed to prepare the soil. It is best to mix one part of pine needle soil. The pine needle soil is acidic, which can ensure that it grows better and more vigorously.

2. When mixing soil, half of the granular soil can be mixed with half of the nutrient soil.The granular soil can be selecte from coal cinder and lava.The nutrient soil can be fermented humus soil and turf soil, and then a small amount of pine needle soil is added, so that the mixture can also meet the growth requirements of the crab cactus, the granular soil can ensure water permeability and air permeability, the nutrient soil can provide nutrients, and the preparation cost is low.

3. In addition to the above two methods of soil mixing, the commonly used method is to mix garden soil, humus soil and river sand in the ratio of 1:1:1. There is humus in garden soil and humus soil, and the river sand can ensure that it will not harden, but the water permeability of this preparation is slightly worse, so pay attention to the usual watering.

2. Precautions

During the cultivation period, it is not enough to only pay attention to the method of soil mixing, but also pay attention to the usual management.It likes acidic soil, usually watering regularly add ferrous sulfate in the water to maintain the acidity of the soil, especially in the northern alkaline areas, once the soil alkaline heavy will affect growth, there will be poor growth, affecting flowering.In addition, the tap water for irrigation should be aired first and then used after two or three days.
