Bulbous plants. Reproduction -Part III- Ideas for gardens and decoration

Good afternoon everyone, we will continue talking a little more about the multiplication and reproduction of the bulbous plants. In today's article we will talk about the underground organs: tunnels, tuberous roots and if we have time, of the rhizomes and the pseudobulbs.

The corms they are really similar to bulbsexternally Their differences are found in the dry leaves of which they are composed and not of scales. The corms deplete their reserves and these are transformed into dry discs that will completely renew.

In the corms The leaves are rather thin and small. The reserves are accumulated on the stem that is fleshy and based on the roots. In the upper area there are one or two buds, from here the new plant is formed.

The little ones corms that are born around the mother bulb are perfect for reproduction, once they are thicker. We can take them out in the autumn season … we wash the bulbs well with fungicide, let dry and store them in sawdust, peat … the place must be fresh and dry. Then we sow in spring, in a tray with compost. In two years we will see the flowering phase.

Now the Tombs They are modified stems so that they can store reserve substances. They are composed of a central bud and have a rather flat circular shape.

To the tombs they don't get any children, so a multiplication by this method would not be possible. We obtain them by growing from seeds. After about 9 months, we can manipulate the specimen, removing its flowers so that the tuberous thickens.

As we have stayed a little short, in the next article we will just explain the last two types of underground organs of bulbous plants: tuberous roots or also called tubers, psudobulbs and rhizomes.

-Every painful event contains a seed of growth and liberation-
