Caring for Pentas

  • Pentas make a welcome addition to gardens due to their relatively low maintenance requirements.
  • For the best results, start planting during late spring using a well-drained, moist soil and plenty of sunlight for good measure.
  • The Pentas prefers a soil that doesnt stay soggy after heavy rainfall or irrigation.
  • Choose an area that gets more than 6 hours of bright sunlight every day. When planting multiples, space plants 18 to 24 inches between each plant.
  • In addition to sunlight, Pentas care requires plenty of water. When you see soil begin to dry out, its time to water.
  • Put in an inch or two of water for every 2 to 4 inches of dry topsoil. Repeat the watering cycle when the soil begins to dry out.
  • Keep an eye on the watering schedule, especially in the hotter summer months, when plants may require more water.
  • Fertilize perennial and annual Pentas on a monthly basis using a balanced water-soluble plant food.
  • When planting this easy care flower in spring include a slow-release fertilizer to provide the necessary nutrients for the plant to grow and thrive.
  • Follow up with monthly liquid feedings, using the recommended application rates listed on the label.
  • Also in the springtime add a 2-inch layer of mulch to conserve precious water and prevent weeds.
  • Mulch perennial Pentas before winter to help insulate them against the winter cold.
  • To encourage full bushy growth gently pinch the stems. Trim damaged and dead stems during late winter before spring arrives.
  • Snip dead or overgrown stems as soon as you see them during the growing season to keep your plants looking healthy and bright!
