If you are new to growing paper flowers, I won’t say anything, but if you have studied and grown paper flowers for a long time, you probably should know the main reasons why your paper flowers don’t bloom and only have leaves. The first reason is that the paper flowers don’t have enough space to grow and develop, and the second reason is that the paper flowers are lacking sunlight, so they grow slowly and don’t bloom.

Just use this simple method to water the paper flowers, and the flowers will bloom all year round:

Add a little vinegar to the paper flowers

According to expert technicians in caring for plants, paper flowers are a type of plant that needs a moderate amount of water. Therefore, they will thrive in conditions with just enough water. To prevent the plant from being affected by flooding, ensure that the planting soil has good drainage. The plant will thrive with soil that has a pH level between 5.5 and 6.0. If you are growing paper flowers, make sure the soil maintains the appropriate pH level. Paper flowers only thrive in acidic soil and usually won’t bloom as desired if the soil has a balanced pH level.

One interesting trick for maintaining the soil’s pH level is to use vinegar. Dilute 1 cup of vinegar (150ml) with 4 liters of clean water and pour it into the soil. This solution not only helps increase soil acidity but also provides a certain amount of iron to the planting soil. Vinegar stimulates plant growth and regular blooming.

Paper flowers are relatively easy to care for. During the summer when the temperature and humidity are high and there is plenty of sunlight, you need to pay a little more attention. Maintain loose and well-drained soil, regularly supplement with 3 fertilizers: nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium, and the paper flowers will thrive.

Some tips for good paper flower growth:

Care for the flowers after blooming with fertilizer

After the paper flowers bloom (a process that takes about a month), the plants will consume a lot of nutrients. If not fertilized and managed in a timely manner, the flowers will decrease or not bloom. If managed correctly, paper flowers will continuously bloom all year round and have high value.

At this point, you need to supplement the soil with multi-nutrient fertilizers such as homemade cakes or synthetic fertilizers to provide nutrients for the flowers during the blooming process, so that the branches and leaves can develop in balance.

After fertilizing, you need to control the water. While controlling the water, add phosphorus and potassium fertilizer every 10 days to promote flower bud differentiation and more blooming. You only need to fertilize about three times, then the flowers will bloom profusely.

Water control

Stage 1: Newly planted flowers

At this stage, the plant’s root system is still weak, so you should limit heavy watering to prevent waterlogging and root rot. You should water the plants twice a day in the morning and evening with a moderate amount of water.

Stage 2: The plant is in the growth stage

At this stage, all parts of the paper flowers have stabilized. You should water more to help the plants grow vigorously, produce more shoots and leaves.

Stage 3: The plant is preparing to flower

At this stage, you need to transition the plant from growth to development by reducing the amount of water. You can water the plant with only 50% of the usual amount of water for a week, then stop watering. When you see the leaves start to wilt and flower buds appear, you can gradually increase the amount of water to 50% and then 100% after 7 days.

Pruning paper flowers

Pruning paper flowers not only helps create a beautiful shape for the plant but also rejuvenates old plants and stimulates more blooming.

So don’t forget to prune your paper flowers regularly, trim long branches to promote lateral shoots, and remove old leaves to stimulate flower bud differentiation.

Note: The pruning tool must be clean and preferably use scar healing balm to apply to large wounds caused by pruning to prevent fungal infection.

Don’t forget to repot

Normally, after 1-2 years of planting, you should repot the paper flowers:

– If the plant grows quickly and reaches the capacity of the pot, you should repot it into a larger pot.

– If the plant grows slowly, you should trim the roots and replace the soil to rejuvenate the plant’s root system.
