Salvia acclimatization
    #4199137 - 05/20/05 12:44 PM (11 years, 6 months ago)

Quotation From the faq:

Quote:

What conditions does my salvia like?

?

- High RH between 70 – 95% is optimal: Can be grown at lower humidity with acclimatization.

?




While browsing the forum I noticed that a lot of people face some difficulties with the acclimatization either knowing it or not.

Cuttings and newly acquired plants should be under a tent with very high humidity for the first weeks until they look happy again.

After that the acclimatization process to lower humidity can start.
Most people remove the tent for a few hours every day and progressively increase this time until they don?t need the tent anymore!

There is an even better technique.
Instead of progressively increasing the ?off? time its better to make some holes and progressively increase their number and their surface!
This way :
*You don?t need to pay attention to how much time you have the tent removed
*You don?t need to remove the tent and put it back again
*The most important : The acclimatization is more progressive. The plant does not experience the great changes in humidity between tent condition and no tent condition.

Yup ,that would work as far as humidity goes...
Im wondering..can it be acclimated for direct sunlight ? I dont think though that it could survive outside in the winter.

At best,salvia could become a well acclimated houseplant

Yup, originally I was just leaving them out for a few hours a day.

But then, faslimy suggested just making holes in the humidity tent. I've been doing that, and it's worked out swell.

I?ve heard that once it has big roots and hard stem it can survive small scale frosts.
It may be able to survive at the right place outdoors
I may try it in the future after a have made some safety cutting!

As for the sunlight?
I think that it is to remain in shadow! But who knows?
It is said that an increase of the light , promotes salvia flowering!

Indeed!!!! That was in the link i gave in another thread! Worth trying ,but when you have stock for experimentation!

Yes, It also happened to guy here in the forum


An even simpler variation to the method mentioned above could be:

*After making some holes on the tent, perform the misting more and more sparsely until you have the same humidity in and out!

I will try it next time I clone! After that maybe light acclimatization will be tried!

Do it up. Curious about this light acclimatization. It's general concensus that they like indirect sunlight and shade, but I've read about people growing div's in almost complete light conditions.

Would the extra sunlight cause more vegative growth? When you grow weed, you leave it in a lot of light for vegging. Since the goal of salvia is leaf production, wouldn't more light be good? Given that the plant could tolerate it.

Apart from that I don?t have enough well established plants to make this experiment, the sunshine is extremely intense this period here  :cool:
I have to wait! Maybe someone else is able to try it right now!

Anyway!
It should be better to progressively increase the intensity of the sun (maybe using less and less strong sun filters) than to progressively increase the time it is exposed to full sun shine!
This thing may happen naturally to a plant while moving into summer!

This is very untrue in my experiance, even a quick hit of cold will cause the sally to loose all its leaves. Your right it wont be dead, But itll be awhile till it looks like a decent plant again.

Iv seen plants with great root structure get sick or frost and everything from the ground up dies and new shouts willl grow up from the roots.. Its a very hardy plant.

Yup, that's what always do! I take a plastic 2 litre bottle, cut a bunch of holes, and then tape them shut with clear scotch tape. Then once in a while I rip one of the strips until all the tape is gone. Acclimatizatied!

I do it with all cuttings and some seedlings, not just with salvia.

Something like sun acclimatization happened at a Gerbera . It used to faint every time direct sun hit her. Watering her a lot, helped her overcoming the shock!
It is very possible that salvia is able to adapt in sunnier conditions!

oh yes, if you get a 50% shadecloth over her she loves a full day of diffused sun

I have a plant that dosn't seem to look really healthy, the leaves are yellow, and appears to have a purple tint to it. What is wrong with my plant? lack of nutrients?

Thanks for the good info ytse! I remember a post in here not long ago that had pictures of outdoor salvia. It's definitely do-able, but only in specific places. Last week i had 2 salvia sticks with no leaves planted, thinking they were dead. I've been watering them a little every day, and now there are 14 new leaves coming out, which will give me 5 cuttings total in the future :laugh:

Really Welcome LiveByFreedom , thanks for your nice words!

I?m glad that I helped you , that?s positive feedback!

Your salvia plant is definitely good news! Good luck and nice green thumbs!

On Sun acclimatisation :
One could try it like this.

First week :Give salvia two minutes fulltime sun a day
Second week: Up that to 4 minutes a day
Thrid week : eight minutes a day

See how that goes and how salvia responds...
