Browvalia (Browallia) - an annual bushy plant with tubular flowers from the family Nornichnikovyh. Homeland is rightfully Peru.
Well-branched shrubs up to 40 cm in height bloom continuously in time, amazingly complementing the ornamental pot plant. On the branches bloom white, light blue, blue-violet or dark-purple flowers.

The leaves of Browlovlia are green, about the same size as its flowers.
Browallia-unpretentious plant, but loves bright, without a large number of direct sunlight, lighting. In the hottest hours she needs a shadow. All types of minerals are poisonous, so it is necessary to place the plants out of the reach of children.
Water plentifully and regularly enough so that the soil was constantly wet. During the flowering period of brutallia the temperature is not higher than 18 ° C.
Since Since the plant blooms almost all year round, it is necessary to systematically remove the "stars" that have faded, and take care of the flower. To do this, the weak and old shoots are removed, periodically to enhance branching and give the Brullia bush form, pinch the tops of the shoots.

Browallia is propagated from seeds. If you count on summer flowering, then sowing is carried out in early February, if in winter flowering, at the end of summer. The seeds are sprinkled with earth a little and at an ideal soil temperature of 18-20 ° C, seedlings appear after two weeks. Grown up seedlings dive, and then transplanted into containers for permanent maintenance.
It is not necessary to transplant the plant, because after the flowering and ripening of fruits, the Bewallia dies, so it is grown again.
Possible difficulties and pests.
