Limonium bicolor (Flumbaginaceae) belongs to biennial forb growing in the typical steppe. It is an importantparture resource. The beautiful flowers may be used for ornamental purpose. Because the grasslandenvironment is strongly disturbed by human activities, especially the improper picking of flowers, thepopulation of  L. bicolor is gradually reducing. The problem of conservation of the plant has receivedattention. In this paper the possibility of ex-situ conservation of  L. bicolor through the way of artificialcultivation and tranining is dealt with. The temperature is a ecological factor for limited germination andemerged of seedings of  L. bicolor.
