Sowing seeds of Larsia, a medium-late variety of cabbage, begins in the period from the third decade of March to the third decade of April. The ripening period of full seedlings before planting, open ground lasts 30-40 days.
First of all, you need to prepare a soil mixture for future seedlings. The soil can be mixed independently or purchased ready-made in the store. Mix humus and sod land in a 1: 1 ratio, and add a little ash (1 tbsp. Per 1 kg of soil-mixture). You can also use peat.
Then prepare containers for filling the soil (boxes, cassettes, plastic cups).If the container was already in use, then it should be treated with a disinfectant or dried well. Fill the container with soil mixture and sow the seeds.
After 7-10 days the first shoots will appear. If your seedlings are located in boxes and densely sown, then two weeks after the emergence of seedlings, you should dive them into a separate container. When picking, you need to leave only strong and healthy plants.
For the fast development of seedlings, good lighting for 14 hours a day is important. If the plants are in a dark room and do not receive enough sunlight, use fluorescent lamps.
Watering seedlings should be moderate, care must be taken that the earth does not dried up. Excess moisture also negatively affects plant formation. Systematic loosening of the soil is recommended.
Before the first seedlings appear, the air temperature should correspond to 18-20 ° C. During the growth period of seedlings, in order to avoid stretching and to strengthen the root system, there should be temperature differences: 16-17 ° C during the day and 7-10 ° C at night.
When growing seedlings in closed ground, regular nutrition of plants is mandatory.As fertilizing, you can use various fertilizers based on N, P, K. The first fertilizing takes place 7-10 days after the appearance of the first seedlings. The second – 2-3 days before planting in open ground.
So that after planting the seedlings can quickly adapt in open ground, it is necessary to carry out the hardening process. The process begins 10 days before planting.
The first two days for 3-4 hours provide access to seedlings of fresh air. The next three days, the seedlings are taken out onto the street, every day, gradually increasing the time. The remaining five days, the seedlings remain on the street until planting in open ground.
In early May, 30-40 days after sowing seeds, 4-5 leaves should form on the plant – this indicates that it is time to plant seedlings in open ground. During planting, the plant needs to be deepened to a distance to the first true leaf.
