Dishui Guanyin can be transplanted in autumn. The temperature in this season is not high or low, which is very suitable, and the plant is in the growth stage, the germination ability is strong, after transplanting, it can adapt to the new environment faster, and can recover growth faster. Also note that it can not be carried out in rainy days. After transplanting, we should pay attention not to insolate, not to let it shine directly, and not to water too much, otherwise the leaves will yellow and hinder its recovery.

1. How long is the flowering period

The flowering time of Zygocactus starts from September every year and can last until April of the next year. The growth conditions of Zygocactus in different growth environments are different, and the flowering time is different. The specific flowering time is determined according to the climate and flower growth of the current year.The flowering period of Zygocactus can last for 2-3 months, and the flowering period is also short and long, if we do not pay attention to maintenance, the flowering period may be shortened.

2. How to prolong the flowering period

1. Avoid strong light: Zygocactus needs sufficient sunlight before and during flowering, but once flowering, it can not be kept in strong light environment.The crab cactus can be moved to a semi-shade place to be exposed to the irradiation of astigmatism, and at least more than 30% to 50% of the light is shaded.If the light is too strong, it will cause the flowers to be burned, causing the buds to wither ahead of time, greatly shortening the flowering period, so we must pay attention to avoiding strong light.

2. Low temperature treatment: Zygocactus likes a cool growing environment. If the temperature in the growing environment is too high, the flowers will be greatly shortened.You can control the temperature, keep the temperature at about 10-15 degrees, reduce the speed of metabolism, so as to prolong the flowering period.
