Soil replacement: Whether to replace soil depends on the current soil quality. If the soil is good, it does not need to be replaced. If you want to change the soil, you have to wait until you have passed the slow basin period. Illumination: During the period of stone flower pot, it is necessary to give a certain amount of scattered light, but the light time should not be too long, and to avoid strong direct light. Fertilizing: Do not fertilize the newly bought raw stone flowers first, because it is easy to damage the plants by fertilizing at this time.

1. Temperature and Humidity

Cardinal coral originally grows in subtropical areas and likes warm and humid environment.In winter, we must do a good job of keeping warm, and the temperature should be controlled above 8 degrees Celsius, otherwise we will stop growing.If the climate is dry, it is necessary to spray water regularly to increase the air humidity, which is usually maintained at about 50-70%.

2. Proper illumination

Cardinal coral has a strong ability to adapt to light, but it can neither be exposed to light for a long time nor be completely invisible to light.Periodically move it to its position, put it indoors in a bright place for a period of time, and then put it outdoors in a shaded place for a period of time, so that it can get some light and avoid excessive growth of plants.

3. Proper watering

Cardinal coral cannot grow without sufficient water. Because spring, summer, and autumn are all its peak growth seasons, it is necessary to water frequently in these three seasons. Otherwise, the plant will grow poorly due to drought, and the leaves will turn yellow.But in winter, the plant grows slowly, the demand for water is reduced, and watering can be reduced appropriately.


4. Reasonable fertilization

When the cardinal coral is potted, it needs to be fertilized with enough base fertilizer, which is usually organic fertilizer.In the growth period should also be appropriate topdressing, you can use liquid fertilizer or compound fertilizer, liquid fertilizer to irrigate the roots, compound fertilizer buried after watering, so that plants can better absorb.In addition, winter needs to stop fertilizer, so as not to damage the roots.
