Many people underestimate the need for plant cutting. Although, this procedure is very useful for both outdoor and indoor plants.
1.Sanitary pruning. This type gives green pets a fresh look and eliminates the risk of diseases. Old and yellowed leaves are removed, leaving only new shoots. Sanitary pruning helps to remove the growing shoots of the crown or those that turned out to be very weak and dried up inside. The entire area of damage is trimmed, only healthy tissue remains, and all dry fallen leaves are removed.
2. Pinching young shoots. It carries an aesthetic idea and helps flowers create new shoots.This can give your plant an interesting shape. We recommend carrying this out during very active growth - thus you can cut off the buds at the tops of the shoots, while stimulating the formation of new and fresh shoots.Too long branches can be avoided by giving growth to lateral branches.
3. Rejuvenating. Here, the name speaks for itself. It is best done after winter, when the plant needs growth and full recovery. Start this type of pruning only if you notice that the plant has lost its shape, grows poorly or does not tend to quickly shed its foliage. You can return vitality to your favorite flower, which will delight you with its appearance. Such a pruning type is especially needed for the plants that are prone to frequent shedding of the lower leaf layers or to pulling out shoots. Without this procedure, their life span may be short. Therefore, if you want to enjoy the flower as far as possible, you’d better regularly rejuvenate it.
4. Formation of the crown. Open up space for creativity and create a unique silhouette of your indoor flower. Spring is best suited for this procedure, since this is a time of active growth, and so it is necessary to carry out a sanitary one before it, removing old and yellowed leaves. The formation will stimulate the density of the leaves, exclude stretching and poorly leafed branches.
