Information about the Ly Thien tree
Thien Ly is a vines plant with woody soft stems, heart-shaped leaves with flowers growing in clusters in the axils of the leaves, which are moist, prefer light and cold-resistant. Appropriate temperature development from 20 - 35 o C. Nature is grown in many countries in Southeast Asia, China, India, South America.

The suitable temperature for growing Ly Thien flowers
You can grow natural plants year-round, but the most appropriate is to grow from June to August. The tree is suitable for planting in places with lots of light and ventilation, growing most strongly in the spring or autumn. In particular, the nature can be grown on many different soil types but must ensure moderate humidity so that the waterlogged trees will die or underdevelop, while if drought is prolonged, it will be slow to develop and not flowering or little and very small flowers.
Choose varieties of Thien
This is an important step, affecting the yield of flowers in the future.
Buy natural flower varieties from tree shops or places where people grow a lot for advice (the price is about 30,000-60,000 VND).
Choose healthy varieties free from fungal or pest infections, the leaves must be green and stout
* To plant a natural plant that produces a lot of flowers, you should choose the female wire to plant.
Cut old rope to about 0.6 - 0.8cm brown brown color (near wood).
Cut about 50cm long about 4-5 eyes, circle the lower part, leaving about 1-2 eyes above
Cuttings can be treated with Atonik, N3M, or root-stimulating sprays for quick rooting.
Tramp for the tree
The physical tree belongs to the climbing family, so you need to make rigs, when making rigs not too high or too low, it will be difficult to harvest.
Soil preparation and fertilization : (This place needs to be rewritten, suitable for family planting)
Make soil well before planting, cut canal 10 cm deep, place pots and cover soil with soil. Note: planting too deep the tree is prone to die, underdeveloped, planted too close to each other, the plants lack light for low productivity, the environment is too dense to create conditions for the development of pests.
After finishing watering, after 30 days of URE fertilizing, each kg of water is sprayed to spray 1,000m2. When the tree is 30 cm tall, apply decomposed animal manure + urea fertilizer (300kg of manure, 5kg of urea) and mix to apply 1,000m2. When the climbing plants reached the platform, they started applying NPK, 5 kg applied for 1,000m2, 10 days after the second application, the rate increased.
The natural roots are shallow roots, so when fertilizing, just spread a layer around, then cover with a layer of humus and dry leaves. Fertilizers for nature are mainly decomposed animal manure, added NPK 20-20-15 or 16-16-8. On average, once a month supplement of manure is about 5-10 kg / root, and at the same time, apply about 150 - 200g of NPK per root.
In the days with short days, people also add light bulbs scattered on the scaffold to stimulate flowering. Lighting time is about 4-5 hours a night, divided into 2 times: In the evening from 19:00 to 22:00 and from 3:00 to 5 AM the next morning. Harvest when the bud is almost bloomed (about 1 day before flowering). If harvested in the afternoon, when brought home, spread out and leave in the dark to limit flowering.
Natural cotton if taken good care can be harvested in 3-4 years. At the end of the lunar year, if you see a dense vine, you may proceed to cut off the extra branches, the tree will produce a new branch and continue flowering.
Demand for water:
The nature does not tolerate flooding, but if drought occurs, the trees grow barren, so the trees are suitable for growing in sandy, quickly drained water. Regularly watering the roots, 2 times a day in the morning and afternoon, in the afternoon, it is too sunny to spray water all over the platform to reduce evaporation of water through the leaves, you should invest in a misting irrigation system to reduce public care and higher efficiency.
Natural insect pests are mainly aphids, aphids and thrips often appear in hot weather. Need regular observation to detect and promptly spray to avoid spreading. Regularly trimming the old leaves makes the scaffold open, limiting pests and other pests growing and stimulating plants to flower more.
