种猫草 Plant Cat Grass

最近我种的猫草在盒子里一根一根的,稀疏的就像稀树草原。再看从外面买来的猫草就像茂密的丛林,郁郁葱葱。于是我尝试了一种新的种猫草方式:水培法。根据步骤,先将种子泡水6个小时左右,以软化种皮便于种子发芽。然后将泡好的种子放在湿润的纸上,等待它发芽生长。我将纸固定在装满水的盒子口上,以保持纸巾长期保持湿润。种子的发芽率确实提高了,但是同时存在另一个问题:由于潮湿,纸巾开始变黄、长毛。通过在网络上搜索,我了解到发霉的原因是由于长期潮湿、不通风。并且我发现了更好的方法水培猫草:找一个带盖的塑料杯,将盖子从中间掏空,盖环用来固定纸巾这样就有效防止纸巾长期泡在水里而导致发霉。将已经催芽的种子放在纸巾上后,猫草根部就会穿过纸巾到杯子盛的水里。这样就不用担心猫草会缺水,也可以经常晒晒太阳了。现在我已经把发芽的种子放在了纸巾上,希望这一次可以种出更多更好的猫草。


Recently I planted cat grass in a box, one by one, sparse like a savannah. Looking at the cat grass bought from outside, it looks like a dense jungle, lush and lush. So I tried a new way of growing cat grass: hydroponics. According to the steps, first soak the seeds in water for about 6 hours to soften the seed coat and facilitate the germination of the seeds. Then place the soaked seeds on moistened paper and wait for it to germinate and grow. I secure the paper over the mouth of the box filled with water to keep the paper towels moist for a long time. The germination rate of the seeds did improve, but at the same time there was another problem: the paper towels started to turn yellow and hairy due to the humidity. By searching on the Internet, I learned that the reason for the mold is due to long-term humidity and lack of ventilation. And I found a better way to hydroponic cat grass: Find a plastic cup with a lid, hollow out the lid from the middle, and the lid ring is used to fix the paper towels so that it can effectively prevent the paper towels from being soaked in water for a long time and cause mildew. After placing the germinated seeds on a paper towel, the catgrass roots will pass through the paper towel into the water in the cup. In this way, there is no need to worry about the lack of water in the cat grass, and you can also bask in the sun frequently. Now that I've put the germinated seeds on paper towels, hopefully this will lead to more and better cat grass this time around.
