The use of a worm compost for the cultivation of cyclamen and poinsettia in pots



The use of a worm compost for the cultivation of cyclamen and poinsettia in pots



Colture Protette 14(4): 102-104



Sterilized or non-sterilized worm compost was mixed with sphagnum peat (pH 3.7) + polystyrene (20% by vol.) in ratios of 10, 20, 30 and 40% worm compost with 90, 80, 70 and 60% peat + polystyrene, and used as substrate for cyclamen and poinsettia grown in pots in the greenhouse. The standard treatment was peat, neutralized by the addition of 4 g/litre CaCO3, and with 2 g/litre of a liquid fertilizer containing 20:20:20 g/litre NPK.
