Potting Plant Growing Pathogen Detection and Analytical Services
The number of different potting plants is very high. The specialism of the grower determines the quality of the crop. Therefore it is important for the grower to adapt the growing conditions of the plant to the product demands. The growth can be adapted with the right fertilization. Compactness, flower control and color are influenced by fertilization. Because of the high diversity of plant cultivars there are also a high amount of different plant diseases. The specialists of Relab den Haan have experience with the diagnosis of the strangest diseases.
For pot plant growers it is the aim to get compact plants. The fertilization can help to accomplish this. The experience shows that a high potash gift is not desired because of the negative effect on the uptake of calcium and magnesium. The advice is to avoid extreme potash gift.
Reducing growth by fertilizing with a low phosphate or nitrogen gift is possible but risky. When the phosphate gift is too low the plant growth can be reduced extremely and the consequence is that the plant needs several weeks before the growth starts again. The plant reacts much faster on a nitrogen gift and it stimulates the branching at the start of the cultivation.
Starting material and diseases
A good start is the basis of a healthy growth. If you have doubt about the starting material you can let the material be diagnosed. A specific treatment of young plants in trays is often more effective then later in the pot.
