Spathiphyllum, or Spathiphyllum, from the Aroid family, is well known to amateur gardeners as a beautiful decorative houseplant, which has earned very wide popularity due to its surprisingly beautiful, unusual flowers. With insufficiently proper care, the leaves and flowers of spathiphyllum begin to blacken, and other changes in the appearance of room culture also occur.
The notorious, ubiquitous problem of this decorative plant, well-known in indoor floriculture, is the appearance of dried and blackened leaf tips, which very much spoil the appearance of the culture. To avoid this, you need to know the causes of this phenomenon and exclude them:
It is for this reason that it is very important to observe not only the temperature regime, but also to adhere to optimal humidity indicators in a room growing a decorative room culture. The most comfortable are the following conditions for growing spathiphyllum in indoor floriculture:
From time to time, it is advisable to provide the Spathiphyllum indoor flower with a warm, refreshing shower. However, it must be remembered that excessively hard watering causes rhizome decay, which is also characterized by the appearance of black tips on the leaves. The solution to this common problem is quite simple and consists in regulating the water supply of indoor spathiphyllum.
In some cases, spathiphyllum not only dries the leaves along the edges, but also appears characteristic drying black spots in the central part of the leaf plates. Usually, dark brown or black spots on the spathiphyllum may indicate excessive watering, that accompany a houseplant for quite some time. In this case, the root system of ornamental culture quickly begins to rot, which causes blackening of the leaves.
As a result of a burn of the root system with fertilizers, extensive dark spots appear on the leaves of the spathiphyllum very quickly. Then the leaves turn yellow and die off. To correct this situation, it is enough to rinse the root system of the plant in clean and warm, well-maintained water, and then transplant it into a clean soil substrate.
The flower turns black in the case of the so-called "wet" hypothermia, which accompanies evening watering, followed by freezing the root system on a cold windowsill. In this case, it is recommended to warm the window sill or place a flower pot at a certain distance from the window in the winter. With strong freezing of the roots, it is quite difficult to save an indoor plant. A good effect has an increase in the immunity of the decorative culture and pouring warm water through the pan with the addition of Kornevin.
The flowers of spathiphyllum are very attractive, and the abundant bloom makes this indoor culture very decorative. Spathiphyllum has a very high level of sensitivity to waterlogging of the soil, and if this happens, the cores blacken and the flowers darken.
Insufficient soil moisture during the cultivation of "female happiness" (as they often call spathiphyllum) is also very difficult to tolerate by the plant and negatively affects the appearance of the flowers. The plant needs almost constant and regular spraying of the leaves, but moisture must not be allowed to enter the flowers themselves.
As a rule, if the cultivation technology is followed and the plant is fully treated, diseases and pests of spathiphyllum practically do not affect. Nevertheless, special attention should be paid to the indoor flower in the following cases:
The best way to prevent Spathiphyllum from being damaged by pests or diseases is still to systematically wipe the leaves with a damp sponge.
When growing spathiphyllum, one should take into account the fact that foliage grows better in too large pots near an indoor plant, and to obtain abundant and prolonged flowering, it is imperative to observe a proportion between the size of the root system and the diameter of the planting capacity.
