Hydroponic chinese cabbage head full care guide hydroponic cabbage head, is the most inexpensive flowers, because vegetable flowers also have a beautiful side, in the usual time to eat cabbage, leave the heart of the vegetable hydroponic can be.
SO HOW TO GROW CHINESE CABBAGE IN WATER?
Several growth stages of hydroponic cabbage Based on experience, the growth process of hydroponic cabbage is usually divided into three stages.
Stage 1: pre-flowering growth period (flowering stage): from the beginning of hydroponics to the flower buds are fully grown and begin to appear flowering.
Stage 2: Flowering stage, which lasts from the beginning of flowering to the complete end of the blooming stage.
Phase 3: the fruiting period or after the blooming period of sporadic flowering: generally at this time the head of cabbage nutrition will be consumed almost, at this time will bear part of the fruit, retain the strong fruit can get a small number of cabbage seeds;
Even if there is no fruit, proper pruning of the inflorescences that have failed, there will be some small inflorescences that will continue to flower in small amounts until the cabbage is completely depleted of nutrients.
In this case, there is also a chance that a small number of late-blooming cabbage flowers will grow at the same time as the fruit that has been produced.
Usually, the most exciting part of hydroponic cabbage is the second stage: the flowering period, which lasts longer, especially during the blooming period, when the blooming cabbage is golden and especially beautiful.
If there are multiple hydroponic cabbages blooming at the same time, it will be even more spectacular. Only by pollinating the head of cabbage during the flowering period will it have a chance to produce seeds.
HOW TO HAND-POLLINATE
First of all, it should be clear whether the plant is a self-pollinated plant, that is, the plant’s pollen is hermaphroditic pollen, and its pollination is the pollen of both sexes, falling on the pistil stigma of the same flower.
For self-pollinating plants, the following methods of artificial pollination are generally used.
- remove all the stamens of the immature flower, i.e., depilating.
- Put a paper bag over the pistil-only flower, seal it, and when the flower matures, collect pollen from the plant you need and scatter it on the stigma of the female flower with the stamens removed.
This is the simplest and most basic step, if these two steps are not strictly enforced, artificial pollination is sure to fail, as long as the male is prevented from self-pollination, the bag is to prevent accidental cross-pollination, such as insects and wind, and other media pollination.

3, flowering fast, long flowering period: in general, as long as the light, temperature, and other appropriate conditions, generally began to hydroponics 5 ~ 8 days after the flower, the next few days will soon enter the blooming period, a total of 2 ~ 3 weeks can continue to flower or so.
If the nutrients are still sufficient afterward, moderate pruning can still continue to bloom and play a role in extending the flowering period. In the past, the longest hydroponic cabbage can continue to bloom for more than a month, but the first period is the blooming period, and then moderate pruning, can still be sporadic blooming for a long time (there is the possibility of a second bloom).
