Impatiens cultivation techniques

English name: Impatiens
Scientific name: Impatiens holstii
Origin: Eastern tropical Africa Family: Impatiens Impatiens Characteristics: perennial herb, commonly used for annual cultivation. Hi warm and humid environment, not tolerate drought and low temperature. Most of the varieties were sown, and the cuttings had fewer branches and scattered plant shapes, and flowering was more scattered. New Guinea Impatiens also has specialized cuttings, which are compact, large and colorful. Unlike the common Impatiens in China, its cultivars differ greatly from the native species. Impatiens is one of the most popular potted flowers in Europe and the United States, and its varieties are extremely rich and colorful. There are two common categories, namely the "stress" series of single flowers, "beat" series, "super elf" series, "vortex" series, "glare" series; double flap "carousel" series. Many of these varieties also have star-shaped, lace and other patterns. Sowing and raising seedlings: Impatiens balsamia is a long-lived flower, with four seasons visible. It can be planted all year round in greenhouses under many climatic conditions. In the middle and lower reaches of the Yangtze River, due to the high temperatures in the summer, Ocean Impatiens is mostly used in spring flower beds, so its sowing time is mostly in winter. The seeds of Ocean Impatiens range from approximately 1700 to 2000 grains per gram, and seed germination requires a certain amount of light. Germination temperature 20-22 °C, about 8-15 days can germinate. The soil for sowing should be made of porous and porous media, which can be made of peat, vermiculite and perlite in a ratio of 6:2:2. The seed is sown after sterilization and the pH is controlled between 6.0 and 6.2. The EC value is less than 0.75.
The first stage:
Radicles appear about 4-5 days after sowing. This stage requires higher humidity, and it is necessary to keep the medium moist due to germination requiring 100 lux of light. A thin layer of vermiculite is recommended for moisturizing. Not fertilize, pay attention to maintain a constant germination temperature.
second stage:
The humidity requirement at this stage is slightly reduced so that the radicle can be stretched out and smoothly “uncapped”. The main root of Ocean Impatiens is not obvious, and fibrous roots can be seen at 1-2cm in later stages. At this stage the cotyledons unfold and the first true leaf appears. In this case, a small amount of fertilization can be applied with 50 ppm of 20-10-20 water-soluble fertilizer, preferably combined with watering.
The third phase:
At this time the seedlings began to grow rapidly, but it seems that the growth of Ocean Impatiens is still relatively slow, so this phase will be longer than other varieties. During this period, 70-100 ppm of 20-10-20 and 14-0-14 water-soluble fertilizers were applied alternately every week. At this time, it is required to control moisture and combine it with fertilization to make the inter-medium wet. The growing environment also needs to maintain a certain space humidity, but the temperature should be reduced to more conducive to growth. When the seedling has 3-6 true leaves and the root has appeared at the bottom of the hole, this stage is ended.
The fourth stage:
By this time, the root system has become more sturdy, and it is necessary to control the moisture for hardening the seedlings and to prepare for transplanting or sale. Ventilation should be strengthened to prevent seedlings from being leggy.
Transplanting / Upper Basin: Yang Fengxian should be nursed in the plug, otherwise its root development is slow. When transplanting seedlings have 4-6 true leaves, root groups. Usually can be potted or transplanted into a 12cm nutrient bowl, once in place.
Light regulation: Impatiens are not resistant to strong light when they grow, especially in the summer to enhance shade, can be planted under the tree or concealed.
Temperature control: Impatiens is not tolerant of high temperature and low temperature, and grows well between 15-25°C. Summer high temperature and winter cold plants are susceptible to disease.
Water and Fertilizer Management: Impatiens stems have soft fleshy stems and will wither in the absence of water. Even if grown under trees, additional water supply and fertilization are required to avoid competition with the roots of the tree. All the species of Impatiens grow well in a fertile, moist environment. Of course, certain water-soluble fertilizers must be applied regularly. Apply 20-10-20 and 14-0-14 water-soluble fertilizer 100ppm-150ppm once a week. Use less during the summer and winter, and pay special attention to half the concentration.
Cultivation management: Impatiens is an easy-to-conserve plant. It does not require bunching and trimming in the formation of a beautiful plant, and it does not require frequent movement to form a plump plant and create fresh, bright flowers. If the plant is poorly shaped, the plants can be pruned and become full after 2 weeks.
Diseases and Insect Pests: Less pests and diseases, mainly susceptible to Botrytis infection in summer and winter. In addition to enhanced ventilation, chlorothalonil 800-1000 times can be applied to control. Aphids also occur frequently and are regularly observed. Once they occur, they can be used for control. During high temperatures in summer, drying often leaves the bottom yellow off and affect the plant shape.
Out of the garden quality: Out of the garden, Yang Fengxian should be plump, round, 30% are flowers, do not see the medium from above.

Black Goji Berry

Black Goji berries is a new treasured food that discovered in recent years,the nutrition value is much more than Red Goji berries, such as mineral elements and trace elements. Black Goji berry can preserve one's health, it contain a lot of anthocyanins,  has the function of 

scavenge for free radicals and anti-oxidation  which can help to  prevent cancer, it also help skin care, protect eyesight and adjust immunity, improve blood circulation etc.  


The procyanidins content of Black Goji Berries is much higher than blueberries(Black goji berry contain procyanidins is 3690 mg / 100 g; blueberries contain procyanidins is 330-3380 mg / 100 g). This is the highest ever discovered procyanidins content of natural wild fruit, which is the most effective natural antioxidant, its efficacy is 50 times of VC and 20 times of VE, the vitamins, minerals and other nutrients content is also higher, medicinal and health care value is much higher than ordinary red Goji berry, known as "soft gold".


Black goji berry typical usage:

1. Direct eating-the fruit may be eaten fresh, dried

2.Put it into a tea,

3. Put it into warm or cold water(NOT hot water)

4.  Adults eat about 5 grams per day wolfberry more suitable Black goji berry in alkaline water blue, purple in acidic water.

You can use mineral water or purified water to test the color -vivid purple or blue .
