Name story

Field bindweed
This trumpet-shaped flower blossoms everywhere in the garden and has become one of the grass weeds that annoy gardeners. Although the flowers are similar to the morning glory, they are actually not related to each other. The plant continues to spread by winding its stems on other plants in a counterclockwise fashion. Also, it often appears in field areas. So it is called field bindweed.

Symbolism

Humility, constancy

Usages

Garden Use
Field bindweed is liked for its heart-shaped leaves and pretty flowers. It is a spreading plant that can be grown as ground cover or as a hedge plant. It can also be grown over trellises or to cover unsightly areas. It may also be grown as an indoor plant. However, care must be taken to not allow it to strangle other plants.

Trivia and Interesting Facts

Legend has it that bindweed is also called - Our Lady's Little Glass. As the story goes, the Virgin Mary happened upon a wagoner whose cart was stuck. She offered to help him release his cart if he gave her a glass of wine. Since he didn't have a glass, she handed him a field bindweed. He filled it with wine, and she helped him set his cart free.

Weed Control About Field bindweed

Weeds
Convolvulus arvensis is native to Eurasia, but can be found in nearly every country in the world. It is considered noxious in the US, Kenya, Tanzania, and Uganda, and is illegal to import into Australia. Field bindweed grows extremely fast and can produce up to 500 seeds per plant, making it incredibly smothering to native species. It also greatly competes for nutrients, moisture, and light. The seeds can last in the soil for up to 20 years, making it nearly impossible to fully eliminate. Controlling the seedlings and shoots of growth can help keep it contained, but years of intense herbicide use seems to be the only way to fully eliminate field bindweed.
How to Control it
The best time to remove weeds is before their flowering and fructification, otherwise controlling them can be very difficult. After they have flowered and fructified, their seeds can spread very fast, and hence, the weeds should be removed more often and precautions should be taken in advance in the following year. Mulching: During the seed stage, covering the soil with sawdust, straw or black mulches can effectively inhibit seed germination and the growth of seedlings. In the winter or spring, this method is often used to inhibit the seeds in the soil from germinating. If the weeds have already flowered and fructified, then the method can also be used to prevent more seeds from falling into the soil. Pulling out: Wear gloves or use tools to remove weeds before their fructification. If the soil is too dry, then water the soil thoroughly to make it softer, which can help to remove the root systems of the weeds. After that, deep tillage can be adopted to remove bits of weed roots left in the ground. This method works particularly well for weeds that are low-growing or in their seedling stages. Mowing: Mowing weeds before their fructification can effectively control their spread. Especially for annual weeds, frequent mowing can inhibit their growth and fructification, and thus can remove them effectively within the year. Ploughing: Be sure to plough and pull out all roots of perennial weeds before planting. With an average of 16 deep cultivations, the weed can be effectively controlled after two seasons. The roots should be discarded, exposed to the sun for a long time, or buried deep. You can also use the roots to make organic fertilizer and compost the weeds. During the seedling stage, it can be effectively removed by herbicides. Apply herbicides heavily to the plant, and remember to re-apply every time when it reaches 30 cm in length. It can also be eliminated within two seasons, provided that during the period all of its aerial shoots are cut completely and constantly within 12 days of emergence. Boiling water can also be used to eliminate the weed, if there is no other plant growing within 61 to 91 cm of it. Pouring boiling water on the plant as well as about 61 to 91 cm beyond where it is growing can effectively kill it. Competitive plants could impede its growth. Pumpkins, melons or other plants with thorny vines could inhibit field bindweed's growth. Note: When removing weeds, especially those which are toxic, thorny and have allergenic sap, be sure to wear gloves and avoid direct contact with them. When removing weeds during their bloom time, be sure to wear special masks to prevent pollen allergy.

Temperature Temperature Temperature
What is the best way to water my Field bindweed?
When watering the Field bindweed, you should aim to use filtered water that is at room temperature. Filtered water is better for this plant, as tap water can contain particles that are harmful to its health. The reason that the water should be at room temperature or slightly warmer is that the Field bindweed comes from a warm environment, and cold water can be somewhat of a shock to its system. Also, you should avoid overhead watering for this plant, as it can cause foliage complications. Instead, simply apply your filtered room temperature water to the soil until the soil is entirely soaked. Soaking the soil can be very beneficial for this plant as it moistens the roots and helps them continue to spread through the soil and collect the nutrients they need.

What should I do if I water my Field bindweed too much or too little?
Both overwatering and underwatering will be detrimental to the health of your Field bindweed, but overwatering is a far more common issue. When this species receives too much water, its stems and leaves may begin to wilt and turn from green to yellow. Overwatering over a prolonged period may also lead to diseases such as root rot, mold, and mildew, all of which can kill your plant. Underwatering is far less common for the Field bindweed, as this plant has decent drought tolerance. However, underwatering remains a possibility, and when it occurs, you can expect to find that the leaves of your Field bindweed have become brittle and brown.
It is crucial that you notice the signs of overwatering as soon as possible when caring for your Field bindweed. Some of the diseases that arise from overwatering, such as root rot, may not be correctable if you wait too long. If you see early signs of overwatering, you should reduce your watering schedule immediately. You may also want to assess the quality of soil in which your Field bindweed grows. If you find that the soil drains very poorly, you should replace it immediately with a loose, well-draining potting mix. On the other hand, if you find signs that your Field bindweed is receiving too little water, all you need to do is water more regularly until those signs have subsided.

How often should I water my Field bindweed?
If your plant is in a pot. The most precise way to decide whether your Field bindweed needs water is to plunge your finger into the soil. If you notice that the first two to three inches of soil have become dry, it is time to add some water.
If you grow your Field bindweed outdoors in the ground, you can use a similar method to test the soil. Again, when you find that the first few inches of soil have dried out, it is time to add water. During the spring and early fall, this method will often lead you to water this plant about once every week. When extremely hot weather arrives, you may need to increase your watering frequency to about twice or more per week. With that said, mature, well-established the Field bindweed can show an admirable ability to withstand drought.

How much water does my Field bindweed need?
When it comes time to water your Field bindweed, you should not be shy about how much water you give. With the first two to three inches of soil dry, this plant will appreciate a long and thorough watering. Supply enough water to soak the soil entirely. The amount of water you add should be enough to cause excess water to flow through the drainage holes at the bottom of your pot. If you don’t see excess water draining from the pot, you have likely underwatered your plant. But do not let the water accumulate inside the soil, which will be very dangerous to the plant as well. Alternatively, a lack of water draining through the pot could indicate poorly draining soils, which is detrimental to the health of this plant and should be avoided. If the plant is outside, 1 inch of rain per week will be sufficient.

How should I water my Field bindweed at different growth stages?
The water needs of the Field bindweed can change depending on growth stages as well. For example, when your Field bindweed is in the first few years of its life, or if you have just transplanted it to a new growing location, you will need to give more water than usual. During both of those stages, your Field bindweed will put a lot of energy towards sprouting new roots that will then support future growth. For those roots to perform their best, they need a bit more moisture than they would at a more mature phase. After a few seasons, your Field bindweed will need much less water. Another growth stage in which this plant may need more water is during the bloom period. Flower development can make use of a significant amount of moisture, which is why you might need to give your Field bindweed more water at this time.
Read More more
How should I water my Field bindweed through the seasons?
The Field bindweed will have its highest water needs during the hottest months of the year. During the height of summer, you may need to give this plant water more than once per week, depending on how fast the soil dries out. The opposite is true during the winter. In winter, your plant will enter a dormant phase, in which it will need far less water than usual. In fact, you may not need to water this plant at all during the winter months. However, if you do water during winter, you should not do so more than about once per month. Watering too much at this time will make it more likely that your Field bindweed will contract a disease.
Read More more
What's the difference between watering my Field bindweed indoors and outdoors?
It is most common to grow the Field bindweed indoors for any gardener that does not live in temperate and tropical regions. Those gardeners should consider the fact that soil in a container can dry out a bit faster than ground soil. Also, the presence of drying elements such as air conditioning units can cause your Field bindweed to need water on a more frequent basis as well. if you planted it outside. When that is the case, it’s likely you won’t need to water your Field bindweed very much at all. If you receive rainfall on a regular basis, that may be enough to keep your plant alive. Alternatively, those who grow this plant inside will need to water it more often, as allowing rainwater to soak the soil will not be an option.

Field Bindweed Watering Instructions
Field bindweed is native to Europe, Asia, and North Africa and is commonly found in open fields and disturbed areas with well-drained soil. It is adaptable to a variety of climates, including both temperate and Mediterranean regions. This plant is accustomed to receiving moderate rainfall and generally prefers slightly moist soil. To mimic its native environment, it is important to provide regular watering, ensuring the soil remains consistently moist without waterlogging the plant.
When Should I Water My Field Bindweed?
Introduction
Proper and timely watering plays a crucial role in maintaining the overall health and development of the field bindweed. It contributes to its optimal growth, vibrant flower production, and resistance against diseases. Therefore, understanding the appropriate signals indicating when the plant should be watered is essential.
Soil Moisture: Soil around the plant base is dry to the touch
One clear sign of when field bindweed needs water is the dryness of the soil. This can be checked by touching the soil around the plant base. If the top 1 to 2 inches of soil is dry to the touch, this means the plant most likely requires watering.
Leaf Condition: Wilted or lackluster appearance
The condition of the leaves of field bindweed can also be a reliable indicator for watering necessities. If the leaves appear wilted, lackluster, or begin to lose their vibrant color tending to fade or yellow, these are indicative of the plant being under-watered.
Pre-Flowering Stage: Bud drop or insufficient flowering
Field bindweed particularly requires watering during its pre-flowering or bud formation stage. A lack of water during this critical period may result in bud drop, preventing the plant from flowering fully.
Temperature and Sunlight Exposure: Warm temperatures and high sunlight exposure
Field bindweed has a high water requirement during warm temperatures and high sunlight exposure periods. Therefore, one must ensure to observe proper watering if these conditions are persistent.
Early Watering Risks
Watering field bindweed too early, when the soil is still moist, could risk root rot, fungus infestation, and other root diseases due to over-watering.
Late Watering Risks
Watering field bindweed too late, when it has been excessively dry for an extended period, could risk temporary wilting and might stunt the plant's growth. In extreme conditions, it can lead to plant death due to dehydration.
Conclusion
Understanding these signs is critical to effectively manage the watering schedule for the field bindweed. Proper water management not only encourages its growth and flowering but also prolongs its lifespan and maintains plant health.
How Should I Water My Field Bindweed?
Watering Requirements
Field bindweed, also known as Field bindweed, has specific watering needs and sensitivities that should be considered for optimal hydration.
Watering Technique
One effective technique for watering field bindweed is bottom-watering. This involves placing the plant container in a tray or saucer filled with water and allowing the roots to absorb water from the bottom up. It ensures that the roots receive adequate moisture while minimizing the risk of over-saturating the surface.
Watering Can Type
When using a watering can, it is best to choose one with a narrow spout. This allows for targeted watering at the base of the plant, avoiding excessive wetting of the foliage. It helps prevent fungal diseases and encourages efficient hydration at the root level.
How Much Water Does Field Bindweed Really Need?
Natural Habitat Watering Conditions
Field bindweed's natural habitat involves moderately moist soil. They are commonly found in fields, roadsides, and other open, undisturbed areas where the soil retains a decent amount of moisture but drains well.
Optimal Watering Volume
The amount of water field bindweed requires is directly proportional to its pot size and plant size. A rule of thumb for watering field bindweed is to water thoroughly until the water runs out of the drainage holes at the bottom of the pot. This amount ensures that the water reaches the root depth, stimulating the growth of a healthy root system.
Under/Over-Watering Signs
Signs of under-watering field bindweed may include drooping or wilting, yellow or brown leaves, and slow growth. If over-watered, field bindweed may display signs such as root rot, an unusually fast-growing but frail plant, and yellow leaves. It's important to keep an eye on these key indicators to ensure field bindweed's health.
Watering Implications
Too much water can lead to root rot, a diseased state that quickly kill field bindweed by damaging its roots which leads to the plant not being able to take in water and nutrients necessary for growth. On the other extreme, too little water can cause the plant to wilt and its growth to stagnate, eventually leading to its death.
Specific Care Tips
Ensuring the pot has well-draining soil is crucial for field bindweed's health. While it is okay for the top surface of the soil to dry out between watering, the deeper soil should stay moist without being waterlogged. Probing the soil with your finger can help assess whether the soil is moist enough at the root level without overwatering. Field bindweed's roots can reach to a depth of 20-30 feet, making it important to provide ample depth for proper root growth for potted plants.

Just like people, each plant has its own preferences and needs. Devote time to understanding your plants so you can nurture them properly. Observe your plants attentively, learning from their growth patterns, and becoming more in tune with their needs as you grow together. Keep a watchful eye on new plants and seedlings, as they are sensitive to both overwatering and underwatering. Shower them with gentle love and attention, fostering their growth and strength. Let the rhythm of your local climate guide your watering habits, adapting your schedule to the changing weather and the needs of your plants.
What Kind of Water is Best for Field Bindweed?
Water type preferences
Field bindweed thrives best with rainwater or distilled water. Tap water can also be used but should be dechlorinated and de-fluoridated in order to protect plant's health.
Chlorine Sensitivity
Field bindweed is moderately sensitive to chlorine. It is recommended to use tap water that has been left to sit out for 24-48 hours to allow chlorine to evaporate before watering the plant.
Fluoride Sensitivity
Field bindweed, like many other plants, can be sensitive to high levels of fluoride found in some tap water. Using de-fluoridated water or collected rainwater can help avoid potential fluoride damage, such as leaf tip burn.
Sensitivity to Water Minerals
Field bindweed does not have any specific sensitivities to typical minerals found in water, but a build-up of excess minerals can cause damage over time. Distilled water or rainwater, free from such minerals, can help prevent this.
Water Treatment Benefits
Water treatments can be beneficial for field bindweed. Letting the tap water sit out for a few days can help to evaporate substances such as chlorine and fluoride, making it safer for the plant. Boiling water can also precipitate out hard minerals, making it softer and more plant-friendly.
Water Temperature Preferences
Field bindweed prefers water at room temperature. Cold water can shock the plant's roots while hot water can harm them.
General Watering Conditions
Field bindweed is a hardy plant and can tolerate a range of watering conditions. However, it prefers consistently moist soil during the growing season, but the soil should be allowed to dry out between watering in winter to prevent root rot.
How Do Field Bindweed's Watering Needs Change with the Seasons?
How to Water field bindweed in Spring?
As spring is the onset of field bindweed's growth phase, watering should be balanced, avoiding waterlogging but keeping the soil moderately moist. As soil dries quickly during this season, ensure to water regularly without causing water stress to the plants. Following this watering approach encourages the healthy growth of field bindweed.
How to Water field bindweed in Summer?
Due to increased sunlight and field bindweed's active growth phase, ensure the soil remains consistently moist. However, be cautious not to overwater as field bindweed is adapted to a harsh summer environment and excess water could potentially lead to plant diseases or root rot. Deep watering methods may be beneficial during this season to reach field bindweed's extensive root system and provide sufficient hydration.
How to Water field bindweed in Autumn?
Field bindweed begins to prepare for its dormancy phase in autumn, so watering should be gradually reduced. Adjust the watering schedule considering the reduced evaporation rates during this cool season. Ensuring less but consistent moisture content in the soil helps field bindweed to maintain healthy root system while preventing water-associated diseases.
How to Water field bindweed in Winter?
Field bindweed enters its dormancy phase during winter, so watering should be minimal. As the plant's metabolic activities are significantly reduced, its water requirements also diminish. It is crucial to avoid soil waterlogging during this season as cold and wet conditions can cause root rot in field bindweed.
What Expert Tips Can Enhance Field Bindweed Watering Routine?
Watering Tools:
Using a watering can with a narrow spout or a hose attachment with a misting nozzle can help deliver water directly to the base of the plant without splashing the leaves. This reduces the risk of fungal diseases and promotes efficient absorption.
Watering in the Morning:
Water field bindweed in the early morning, ideally between 6 am and 10 am. This allows the plant to uptake water before the peak heat of the day, reducing moisture loss through evaporation. Avoid watering in the evening as wet foliage overnight can increase susceptibility to diseases.
Moisture Meter:
Using a moisture meter can help assess field bindweed's deeper soil moisture needs and prevent over or under-watering. This plant prefers its soil to be mostly dry before the next watering, and a meter can effectively measure this.
Avoid Over-Watering:
Field bindweed is highly drought-tolerant and can actually thrive with minimal water. Avoid over-watering, as it can lead to root rot and weaken the plant. Allow the top few inches of soil to dry out between waterings.
Monitor Soil Moisture:
Rather than relying solely on surface appearance, occasionally check the moisture level deeper down in the soil. Insert your finger or a soil probe a few inches into the ground near the plant's root zone to gauge moisture levels. This will help determine when to water.
Signs of Thirst:
If field bindweed starts showing signs of wilting or the leaves appear limp, it may be an indication that the plant needs watering. However, don't rush to water immediately; double-check the soil moisture and ensure it genuinely requires watering.
Adjusting for Heatwaves:
During a heatwave, field bindweed may require more frequent watering since the excessive heat can evaporate moisture from the soil faster. Increase the frequency of watering but ensure the soil still largely dries out between each watering session.
Managing Extended Rain:
If field bindweed receives sustained rainfall, decrease the frequency of watering to prevent waterlogged soil. Field bindweed is adapted to survive in drier conditions and can be negatively affected by excessively wet soil.
Watering Stressed Plants:
When field bindweed is facing stress due to factors like transplanting or pest infestation, provide adequate hydration. Stressed plants can be more susceptible to damage, so ensuring they receive enough water helps support their recovery.
Considering Hydroponics? How to Manage a Water-Grown Field Bindweed?
Overview of Hydroponics
Field bindweed is a plant that can be successfully grown using hydroponics, which is a method of growing plants without soil. Hydroponics involves providing the plant's roots with a nutrient-rich water solution instead of soil.
Best Suited Hydroponic System
A nutrient film technique (NFT) system is well-suited for growing field bindweed hydroponically. NFT systems allow a thin film of nutrient-rich water to constantly flow over the roots, providing the plant with oxygen and nutrients while maintaining a suitable moisture level.
