  • water dropWater

    Fairy Magnolia Blush should be watered deeply to encourage root growth, ensuring even moisture without waterlogging, which can be detrimental. Newly planted specimens require more frequent watering, about once or twice a week, depending on weather conditions, until they are established. Established plants will benefit from watering once every week or two, with each session providing approximately 1 to 1.5 gallons to maintain consistent soil moisture. During hot, dry spells, monitoring the soil moisture is crucial and may necessitate additional watering if the top few inches are dry to the touch.

  • sunLight

    Fairy Magnolia Blush thrives in full sun to partial shade, preferring at least 4 to 6 hours of sunlight each day. The best spot for the plant would provide morning sunlight with some afternoon shade in hotter climates, as too much intense afternoon sun can potentially stress the plant and its blooms.

  • thermometerTemperature

    Fairy Magnolia Blush can tolerate a range of temperatures but grows best when the climate stays between 55°F and 85°F. It can endure minimum temperatures down to about 20°F, although prolonged exposure to freezing conditions should be avoided. The ideal temperature for encouraging lush growth and vibrant blooms would be in the moderate range, avoiding extremes of either cold or heat.

  • scissorsPruning

    Fairy Magnolia Blush benefits from pruning to shape the plant, encourage new growth, and maintain health. Prune after flowering to avoid cutting off the next year's buds; this is typically in late spring or early summer. Removing dead or crossing branches can be done as needed to improve air circulation and light penetration within the plant.

  • circleLife cycle

    The Fairy Magnolia Blush, also known as 'Micjur01', begins its life cycle as a seed, which upon germination in favorable conditions of soil, moisture, and temperature, develops into a seedling. The seedling stage is followed by vegetative growth, where the plant establishes its root system and foliage in the form of lush, green leaves. As it matures, the Fairy Magnolia Blush enters the flowering stage, producing delicate, lightly scented blush-pink flowers that attract pollinators and signify the plant's reproductive phase. Following pollination, the flowers develop into seed pods, setting the stage for seed dispersal. Once seeds are spread, potentially by wind, animals, or human intervention, those that successfully land in conducive environments will germinate, completing the cycle. Throughout its lifetime, which includes a period of dormancy during colder months, the Fairy Magnolia Blush requires appropriate care to thrive, including proper sunlight, watering, and pruning.

  • sproutPropogation

    • Propogation time


    • Propogation: The Magnolia Fairy Magnolia Blush, known as 'Micjur01', is best propagated through softwood cuttings, which is the most popular method. This involves taking a cutting that is about 4 to 6 inches (10 to 15 cm) long from new growth that is not yet hard. The cutting should be made just below a leaf node, and the lower leaves should be removed. The cut end is then treated with a rooting hormone and placed in a pot containing a mix of peat and perlite or a similar medium to encourage root development. The cutting should be kept under high humidity, either with a plastic covering or a humidity dome, and in indirect light. Rooting typically occurs in a few weeks, after which the new Magnolia can be transplanted to a more permanent location.
