Terms Of Roses Cultivation

Last time, I wrote an article about Rose Cultivation is Really Fun, the rose plant cultivation that leads to certain specifications which types of long stemmed roses. If you are really interested in the cultivation of rose plants, there are several requirements you should note, however on this occasion I will try to discuss it in terms of nature which is as follows.

Climate Factors

Rose plant of long stemmed roses can be grown in sub-tropical or cold climates and the tropics or the temperate heat with cool air ranging between 64.4 to 78.8 degrees Fahrenheit and a humidity range of 70 to 80 percent. This plant can be cultivated in both places due to their adaptability to its environment.

How about the wind? Rose growth not affected by the wind factor, but influenced by rainfall, a good rainfall for growing roses is 1500-3000 mm per year. Check the annual rainfall in your location through http://www.climatemps.com/.

Another factor is the sunlight factor, to make roses always blooming and has a sturdy stem, it requires sunshine per day on average 5 to 6 hours. The morning sun is the most flattering than the afternoon sun, as the afternoon sun can cause these plants to dry. Check the average sun shine in your location of how many hours each month through weather-and-climate.com.

However, if your climate in your place does not achieve the specifications above, you can still circumvent it, one of them by planting roses in a closed room or greenhouse.

Altitude Factors

For the average, growing rose will be perfect at the altitude of 1500 meters above sea level. However, at another altitude roses can also grow well, but be aware of the air temperature factor. At an altitude of 560 to 800 meters above sea level with a minimum temperature of 60.8 to 64.4 degrees Fahrenheit and 82.4 to 86 degrees Fahrenheit at the maximum. At an altitude of 1100 meters above sea level with minimum air temperature of 57.2 to 60.8 degrees Fahrenheit and 75.2 to 80.6 degrees Fahrenheit at the maximum. At an altitude of 1400 m above sea level with minimum air temperature of 56.66 to 60.08 degrees Fahrenheit and 67.1 to 72.68 degrees Fahrenheit at the maximum.

Soil Factors

The most suitable soil for growing roses is a sandy clay with the clay content of about 20 to 30 percent, a lot of organic matter, loose, fertile, drainage and aeration well. Also on the soil of andosol and latosol who have fertility and physical properties are fairly good.

In addition, soil acidity factors also need to be considered. The most ideal to plant roses degree of acidity or the pH is 5.5 to 7.0. If the soil pH in your place is not suitable for the cultivation of roses such as only 5.0, then you must do liming two weeks before the planting period with dolomite lime, Calcit or zeagro at a dose of 4 to 5 tonnes per hectare.
