Dichondra Emerald FallsThe curling stems of the dichondra liana are densely covered with leaves with a silky edge. In summer, the plant periodically blooms with nondescript, dull, barely noticeable flowers. They can be green, yellow or white and can be up to three millimeters in diameter. This is an ampelous, annual (if brought into the room for the winter - perennial), ground cover plant. Forms a dense rug. The length of the shoots is 100-150 cm.
Blooms from May to August. Dichondra is prized for its decorative leaves and flowing stems. When grown in hanging baskets and pots, cut the shoots regularly to maintain shape and tillering. For the winter, dichondra is brought into a room and kept in a bright cool (about 18˚C, but not lower than 10˚C) place throughout the winter.
Sow seeds in February-March in boxes with a loose and moist substrate. Spread the seeds over the surface of the substrate, lightly sprinkle with earth and cover with foil or glass. Keep at a temperature of about 22-24 ° C. The substrate must always remain moist.
After about 1.5 months, cut the seedlings into separate containers. Several seedlings can be planted in each container, then there will be more greenery, therefore, the plant will look more decorative. In open ground, seedlings are planted at the end of May, after the threat of a return of frost. Dichondra, in hanging baskets or balcony drawers, creates a large green cascade. If you plant it on a flower bed, it forms a thick green carpet. We grow it as an annual.
Resistant to adverse conditions, withstands frosts down to -5C. In the fall, plant pots can be brought indoors and grown in the winter garden.
