Bokarneya reflexed (Beacarnea recurvata), or Nolin (Nolina recurvata) agave family originally from Mexico. It has a bottle-trunk, the storage of water in the dry season; its linear arcuate drooping gray-green leaves are collected in the crown.
For thick trunk with rough bark bokarneyu called "elephant leg", and for a bundle of thin leaves - "horse's tail". In nature, it is quite a large plant; Inside Nolin grows slowly and usually grows up to a meter, with leaves up to 60 cm, but under favorable conditions, can grow up to 2.5 meters. Nolin quite unpretentious and long lives, if not abused its watering.
Location bokarnei should be bright and sunny, well-ventilated. With a lack of lighting Nolin distorted by tilting and pulling barrel toward the light source. Recommended in the summer make it to the fresh air: the balcony or in the garden. Winter Nolin content should be bright and cool, with an air temperature of 10-15 degrees. At Nolin at wintering in a warm dry place to dry start to the tips of the leaves on her attack pests.
Winter at a temperature of 15-18 degrees Nolin not watered at all. At higher temperatures the winter increase the humidity, periodically lightly sprayed leaves; twice a month watering Nolini small amount of warm water from below through the pallet. In summer it is also recommended for limited irrigation: stagnant water is dangerous because bokarneya easily rots.
Bought a young plant, which has not yet formed bottle-trunk, transplanted into a small shallow bowl with a thick layer of drainage, not buried Transfer; subsequently transplanted after 2-3 years. Major bokarneyu put in a heavy ceramic pot with drainage (or tub) and transplanted every five years. Availability in containers Nolin drainage holes necessary. Recommended substrate: sod, ground sheet, peat, humus and sand in the ratio (2: 1: 1: 1: 1).
Nolin fed from May to October every month of complex mineral fertilizers, reducing its concentration doubled relative instructions. Propagated by seeds or cuttings bokarneyu lateral shoots in spring or summer. Cuttings of shoots give dry after cutting and perpetuate them at lower heating of the soil and high humidity. When too warm wintering Nolin suffering from spider mites and scale insects.
