Planting and care

The only Sanchezia growing information you need to know is the best time to take cuttings. Take terminal end cuttings in spring when new foliage is forming. Pull off the lower leaves to make a stem and dip into rooting hormone or alternatively, suspend the cutting in a glass of water.

Sunlight Soil Water Temperature Fertilizer
Full Sun to Partial Shade Well drained soil Dry to medium 30 to 40 Degrees C Apply any organic fertilizer

Caring for Sanchezia nobilis tricolor

  • Sanchezia grows in full sun as long as there is protection from noon-day sun. Partially shady areas produce healthier plants with less burning on the foliage. Temperatures must remain above 50 F. (10 C.). Sanchezia plants need high humidity but allow the surface of the soil to dry out before you irrigate again. Feed during the growing season with ¼ teaspoon of plant food per gallon of water. The fast growing plants respond well to pruning, which can help keep it compact and diminutive enough for indoor use.

Typical uses of Sanchezia nobilis tricolor

Special features: Borders and cottage gardens. Herb gardens. Good vertical accent. Grows well in poor soils and will grow well on dry, rocky slopes or scree.

Ornamental use: The plant is used for ornamental purpose.

Medicinal use: Asthma weed has traditionally been used in Asia to treat bronchitic asthma and laryngeal spasm, though in modern herbalism it is more used in the treatment of intestinal amoebic dysentery. It should not be used without expert guidance, however, since large doses cause gastro-intestinal irritation, nausea and vomiting.
