Just at the turn of the year countless pots with lucky clover are given away. So here's how you can plant and maintain lucky clover.
With a little skill you can attract these lovely lucky charms yourself and bring them everywhere as a welcome garden gift. After about 2 to 3 years, the lucky clover begins to bloom with proper care even with pink or yellow, filigree flowers.
Plant lucky clover
In autumn, you have to sow the lucky clover, which grows up to 20 centimeters tall, in small plant pots or plant pots that you have filled with potting soil. The seed is available for this purpose in the gardening market, but where often also small onions of lucky clover are offered.
For a New Year's lucky clover, you can put the first small plantlets into small pots, in which you can give them nicely decorated. But you can also meet the resting phase of the already large-bred lucky clover for a short time, so that the hibernation then takes place at room temperature. Even then, you can give Lucky Clover Pots on New Year's Eve.
From April you should complete the rest phase of the lucky clover every year by placing the plants at room temperature in a full sunshine window - avoid dry heating air. After the Eisheiligen in May, the lucky clover can then even move as a potted plant in the light to partially shaded, but not full sun.
In the first few days you should make sure that the clover does not burn its leaves in the field. An insertion in the garden bed is only conditionally recommendable.
Maintain lucky clover properly
»Watering / Fertilizing:
During putting on or after the resting phase you have to irrigate the lucky clover regularly but sparingly. The ideal time for this is when the upper layer of soil dries slightly. A full fertilizer gift is sufficient every 4 to 6 weeks.
If the clover of the lucky clover is too small, you can easily repot it in the spring or in the late summer, for which a substrate for houseplants is recommended.
»Remove withered leaves / pruning:
Furthermore, you should pluck all the withered leaves of lucky clover regularly. And if the potted plant gets completely out of shape, you can even cut it into shape in late summer.
Lucky clover is not hardy, so it should winter in a frost-free, cool room (in the basement, for example). And after he moves his leaves in autumn (resting phase), even a half-shady spot is suitable for hibernation.
During the wintering season you should water your lucky clover only minimally so that it does not dry out during this time.
