What size grow bag is best for Ranunculus Flower Bulb?
When To Plant RanunculusRanunculus is a cool-season flower plant and usually grows from bulbs or tubers. In plain areas, plant ranunculus in fall (September-October) for flowers in late winter or early spring (December or January). Whereas in hilly areas plant the bulbs in spring (February-March) for late summer blooms.
How To Grow Ranunculus Flower From BulbsPlant the ranunculus bulbs directly in pots/grow bags or gardens when the temperature is between 12-16°C. Soaking the bulbs for a few hours before planting is recommended by most gardeners to make the bulbs less brittle, but this process is not necessary. Plant 1-2 bulbs per pot for healthy growth and to avoid crowding. Pot or grow bag of at least 9-15 inches is good for it.
Planting Ranunculus Bulbs or CormsTake a pot or grow bag, fill it with potting mix, and plant 1-2 ranunculus bulbs in the soil at a depth of 2 inches. Each bulb has several buds that will produce many flowers so there should be about 3-4 inches of spacing between the bulbs to allow the ranunculus plants to fully develop. The eyes or bud of the bulb should be facing up, keep the claws facing down while planting. Cover the bulb with soil, water deeply through a watering can, and keep the soil moist. Put the pot in a sunny place. After about 2 weeks you will see that the bulbs have developed roots and have begun to sprout.
Ranunculus Fertilizer RequirementsRanunculus plants do not require special fertilizer; just use a liquid fertilizer every few weeks once the plant is established.
