If you are interested in reproducing the golden radish (Lysimachia punctata) in your garden and would like to make the plant at home in various places, you will be interested in the following tips and advice as well as hobby gardeners who do not yet have a plant but want to know in advance want to inform.
The propagation is still a positive side effect to keep existing plants in check and prevent them from taking over the sole control in the garden bed.
How can the gold field be propagated?
This can be done very simply by root division. This method is not only quick and uncomplicated, you also have the advantage of immediately receiving a full-fledged plant and not having to wait around unnecessarily waiting for germination or rooting, as is the case when sowing or propagating through cuttings.
The arguments given in the following overview clearly speak for multiplication by division.
|It's a quick and easy way to get new plants.||In order to be able to multiply the gold field by division, there must already be sufficiently developed plants.|
|You will immediately receive healthy and equivalent plants, which can be transplanted immediately and how adult plants are cultivated.||The root system of young plants is not sufficiently developed to be able to be divided.|
|Not only are new plants obtained, existing plants are also prevented from multiplying uncontrollably and displacing other plants in the bed.|
Multiply Goldfelberich - explained step by step
❶ Take the plant out of the ground
❷ Remove roots from the substrate
❸ Cut up the rhizome
❹ Let the rhizome dry for a few hours
❺ Plant new plants immediately
Ang Water plants well
❼ Water more for several weeks so that the plant can grow well
The right time for the propagation is the transplanting of the golden field, which can happen in spring or autumn. You should exercise caution when digging out the plants to protect the roots as much as possible. Before the division, the existing substrate must be completely removed. You can help yourself here by wiping, tapping or rinsing. The now released rhizome is divided with a sharp knife or scissors. The garden tool should leave smooth cut edges so that the plant is injured as little as possible. Before planting, the new plants should be placed in the sun for a few hours, if possible, to allow the interfaces to dry. The two new plants should then be placed in the ground and irrigated particularly intensively for the first two to three weeks.
" Tip: If the main root has already formed runners in older plants, these can be separated off directly and the entire rhizome does not have to be cut up.
Why propagation can sometimes be omitted
If the Goldfelberich is not stopped, it will expand quickly and take over all beds. Propagation is then unnecessary, because the plant takes care of it by itself. However, an uncontrolled spread of the plant can also become a problem. The plants grow like weeds. This has advantages and disadvantages. Because soon we won't be able to see any of the actual weeds once the golden field has dominated the bed. Digging out the root to divide the plant can then be a real feat. All root parts must be removed completely so that the plant does not sprout again.
Plant care after propagation
Not much needs to be considered here. The plants obtained by dividing the roots are usually strong enough to develop well at the new location. After the plants have been divided and transplanted, they should be watered sufficiently. So that the roots grow well, the soil must not dry out. If a sunny location is chosen, the plants will grow vigorously and will also flower. So it can be assumed that those who multiply their golden field in spring will be able to enjoy several flowering plants in summer.
