Bells on the window
Campanula, bell (Campanula). In indoor conditions - a brittle bell (Campanula fragilis) and an equal-leaved bell (Campanula iscphylla). These beautiful ampelous plants are sometimes called "shooting stars", and even more often, "bride - groom." Indoors take up little space, bloom beautifully and abundantly. Both species have long, thin drooping shoots on which small oval or round serrated leaves are alternately located. Against the backdrop of beautiful foliage, flowers have appeared since the end of June: white - at the bell of the same-leafed and blue - at the brittle bell. Bloom from June to November.
Bluebells are photophilous, prefer moderately warm rooms. At high temperatures in winter, they begin to grow, and this weakens the plant. He does not have big requirements for leaving. It is watered abundantly in summer so that an earthen lump is saturated through and through. Water is not drained from the pan. After it is absorbed, watered again. In winter, when the leaves fade and fall, the plant is placed in a cool place and watered moderately. It is advisable to transplant annually into nutritious loose soil from turf, leafy soil and sand (3: 3: 1).
Well propagated by cuttings, division and seeds. Seeds are sown in February in light soil. Crops are kept in a warm place, dive twice. Cuttings in the spring, at first they are kept under glass, watered very carefully so as not to rot. The emergence of new leaves indicates that the stalk is rooted and can be transplanted into a small pot with loose nutrient soil.
Campanulas during flowering are very decorative. It is better to place them closer to the window in hanging vases.
