Plants undergo photosynthesis to produce organic matter, and eggplant is the same, so does it like cloudy or sun? how much sun do eggplants need to grow?
Eggplant is a plant that likes the sun. During its growth, eggplant has higher requirements for the time and intensity of light.
As long as the sunshine time is long and the sunshine intensity is high, the eggplant can grow and develop vigorously, and the fruit yield will be increased, and the color of the eggplant fruit can be guaranteed.
Therefore, when planting eggplants, you should consider the eggplant’s preference for the sun, so that the planted eggplants can be fully exposed to sunlight.
How much temperature does eggplant need to grow?
Eggplant likes high temperature and can withstand high temperature, which also makes eggplant not resistant to freezing.
The most suitable temperature for the germination of eggplant seeds is between 27 and 32 degrees Celsius. During the seedling stage of eggplant, its development has a close relationship with temperature.
The optimal temperature for eggplant seedling development is between 27 and 32 degrees Celsius during the day. After the night, due to respiration, the optimal temperature for eggplant growth is reduced to between 15 and 20 degrees Celsius.
But after the night temperature suddenly drops below fifteen degrees Celsius, the eggplant will protect itself, making the eggplant grow slowly, and may cause the eggplant to fall flowers.
When it is lower than ten degrees Celsius, the eggplant’s protective mechanism will fail, causing the eggplant’s metabolism to be disordered, and it may even be frostbitten and frostbitten.back to menu ↑
How much sunlight do eggplants need to grow of part 1
During the eggplant planting process, if you want the eggplant to grow well, you must first ensure the temperature condition of the eggplant during its development.
The flower that grows under the normal development of eggplant is a long styloid flower. If the temperature and light conditions are not suitable, the flower that grows out of the eggplant will become a middle column or short column, but only the long column can normally complete the eggplant pollination. Fertilization.
Eggplant can only grow and develop under suitable temperature and light conditions, and eggplant cannot tolerate frost, so the planting location of eggplant needs to be carefully considered.
Moreover, in some hot areas in summer, eggplant preferentially grows slow due to high temperature. In winter, eggplants in the open air often suffer from frostbite.
Therefore, farmers who grow eggplants often choose to grow them in greenhouses. Greenhouse planting requires a greenhouse with good light-receiving conditions and good heat preservation conditions.
To grow eggplants, you need to maintain proper temperature and light.back to menu ↑
How much sunlight do eggplants need to grow of part 2
Eggplant is a kind of crop that likes the sun. The light compensation point is 2000 lux and the saturation point is 40,000 lux. Compared with tomato, cucumber, and other fruit vegetables, it is a vegetable with a lower light saturation point.
However, too little light has a great impact on the growth and development of eggplants, especially the fruit:
When the amount of light is reduced to 1/2, the fruit weight is reduced by 50% compared to the standard light, and when it is reduced to 1/3, the fruit weight is only 13% of the standard light, and the leaf weight is only 30% of the standard light.
The pigment of low-light fruits is not easy to form, especially in purple varieties. We highly recommend you to read “Eggplant is a vegetable that can makes your life more longer“
Different light lengths have an effect on the early and late differentiation of eggplant flower buds and the quality of flower formation. Prolonged light will result in vigorous growth, especially in the seedling stage. Under 15-16 hours of long light, the flower buds will differentiate early and the flower nodes will be positioned. low.
On the contrary, if the light is insufficient, the flower buds will differentiate late and bloom late, even the long styloid flowers will decrease, and the middle and short styloid flowers will increase.
Therefore, in the flower bud differentiation stage of the seedling stage, special attention should be paid to ensuring sufficient light time for the seedlings in order to achieve the purpose of the early harvest. In cultivation, attention should be paid to making full use of sunlight through reasonable dense planting and other means to achieve high yield and quality.
