The Way to Promote The Profuse Flowering
When growing any type of fruit or vegetable, there are certain things that will be the difference maker when it comes to harvest time. Similar to body building in a gym, there is a set path of logic that needs to be followed in order to maximize size and work out production. The same applies for plants and below is better explained the top ways to get the biggest fruits and flowers.
This is a technique that is incorporated worldwide and used on a large commercial scale. Pruning plants simply means cleaning the foliage of the plant so that what is left behind will spend the time focusing its energy on the remaining growth. The best thing to do when growing plants is to totally strip the entire bottom parts of the plant and some growers will even strip away to one internode, before finally flowering the plants. The same is done with tomatoes but not as excessive, as the principal is the plant will now produce all of the fruits and flowers from the top part of the left behind growth.
This may seem totally and utterly counterproductive and seems you are wasting what has taken the last 4-8 weeks to grow. However, incorporating this technique is strongly advised a brilliant way to grow top big flower without any unwanted lower bearing flowering.
Most plants grow better and have more flowers if their wilted and faded blooms are plucked often. Whenever you see the spent flowers, remove them, so the plant can direct its energy on forming more flowers and buds. Wilted flowers waste energy and sap. They also attract insects and diseases. Also, by cutting off the faded flowers, you prevent plants from seeding.
Fertilize the Plants
To have more flowers, feed the plants regularly during the growing season with half-strength liquid fertilizer. A flowering fertilizer should be used that has more phosphorus than nitrogen, as phosphorus is the element that promotes more flower buds. Also, you can mix time-based fertilizer in the soil at the beginning of the growing season.
Light is of course one of the most important factors for plant growth and flowering. The energy the plant receives from light converts carbon dioxide into carbohydrates, sugars. Direct sunlight for several hours a day can be a prerequisite for many plants that come to flower. However, shade-loving plants tend to reduce the number of flowers when exposed to more sun.
WateringExcess watering tends to favor the development of foliage but can also produce the absence of flowering. Similarly, the lack of water can cause the plant to drop the flower buds. The best way is to do moderate watering (avoiding both overwatering and under watering) during the flowering season.
