How to Care?

  • Choose well-drained soil to plant your Pentas plants in late springs to ensure the best growth.
  • They don’t like being in a soggy place and prefer a type of soil that doesn’t hold too much moisture for a long time.
  • Choose an area that receives bright sunlight directly or indirectly to the plant.
  • Pentas plants do not like being in a frosty place. It is advisable to keep them out of areas that receive frosty winds.
  • Use a slow-release fertilizer to allow the plant to uptake nutrients efficiently and apply water immediately after applying fertilizer.
  • Prune the Pentas plants occasionally and remove all the dead and damaged parts to encourage full bushy growth.
  • Discard all the dead or overgrown stems from the plant during the growing stage to make it look healthier and bright.
  • Choose a balanced watering schedule for these plants and avoid frequently applying water.
  • Do not water them unless the soil feels dry to the touch, and reduce the frequency during winter months.
  • Re-pot your Pentas plant once it outgrows the current pot, and choose a bigger pot for the re-potting purpose.
  • Fertilize them using a well-drained and balanced fertilizer every six weeks to ensure the best growth for your plant.
  • Keep an eye on the watering schedule during the summer seasons as it may require more water than usual.
