How to grow and care for a Celosia

I have a beautiful celosia plant but have no idea how to care for it. Please help.


Hi Angie,

Celosia plants produce more of their flame like flowers when placed in a bright, sunny, warm location.
Proper watering and soil is very important. The main reason these plants do not do well is because they are over- watered and planted in a heavy soil that does not drain well. If you plant them in good, loose soil that drains quickly, they should do very nicely. Feed monthly until the plant develops flower buds, then feed every 2 weeks. Use a plant food high in nitrogen. The numbers on the bottle or box should be in the proportions: 3/1/2.
