If you want to grow these magical flowers you need to get the seeds first. You can buy them online or from nurseries. If you are lucky, you might find some of these seeds in your local garden center or nursery.
Achimenes can be grown both inside and outside. However, when growing them outside make sure that you pick a spot in your yard that gets direct sunlight. These magical flowers are more likely to get damaged when their leaves get wet. This means that you should avoid planting them near trees that lose their leaves in the winter.
To start growing these magical flowers, you need to pick a pot that is deep and wide. You will also need potting soil, compost, sand and fertilizer. To start, put a layer of potting soil in the bottom of your pot. Then, add a layer of compost followed by a layer of sand and then another layer of compost. Make sure that you leave a gap of a few inches at the top of your pot.
After this, add water to the pot. You want the soil to be damp but not wet. Next, it is time to plant your seeds. You can do this by simply sprinkling them over the top of your soil. Gently pat down the soil to ensure that your seeds are in the soil.
To help your seeds grow faster add some fertilizer to your soil.
Place your pot in a spot that has full sun. You will also want to make sure that the pot is placed in a way that it can drain water quickly. The last step is to just wait for about a month before you see the first signs of flowers growing above the soil.
The achimenes plant is only in bloom for about a month. After this period, the flowers will start to die. While you can let these flowers die and fall off on their own, you can also pick them as they fade and enjoy their scent while they last.
Achimenes plants are also vulnerable to insect attacks. If you see that your Achimenes have white spots on their leaves, this means that they are being attacked by aphids. You can spray the plants with a strong stream of water to get rid of the aphids. You can also wash them off using a mixture of soap and water.
It is also possible to grow these magical flowers from cuttings. To do this, you need to take a cutting that has at least two nodes on it. You then pot the cutting and wait for it to start growing.
When it comes to watering your magical flowers, you want to make sure that the soil is always moist but not wet.
