How to Care for Juncus Twisted Arrows Plants
When buying a Juncus Twisted Arrows plant, read all of the recommended care instructions to ensure that it will thrive in its new home!
How Much Water Does Twisted Arrows Rush Need?
Juncus Twisted Arrow plants are native to swamp areas and can tolerate standing water for some time. Known as bog plants, they can thrive when planted as a border around ponds or other water garden areas. When planting, we recommend keeping its soil evenly moist. Make sure not to allow its soil to dry out completely between watering. If your plant is in a container, choose one with adequate drainage holes, because if they sit in standing water for too long they could become damaged at the root. The best rule of thumb is if the top inch of soil is dry to the touch, it is time to water again.
How much Light Does Juncus Twisted Arrows Require?
Twisted Arrows plants do best when in direct sunlight. We suggest they receive a minimum of 6 hours of light each day. However, they can tolerate some shade, but never full shade. Other water-loving plants such as Hoyas and ferns prefer shaded areas, but Juncus Twisted Arrows is quite opposite. If you are looking for a specimen plant or a border, particularly on a southern or western wall, this annual will be a great option! Most other plants would not be able to survive due to the high water tables of these areas.
What Kind of Soil Does My Twisted Arrows Need?
Twisted Arrow plants are extremely adaptable to a variety of environments and can tolerate a wide range of soil conditions once they are well established. When you are first planting, make sure to amend any dry or sandy soils with organic matter, such as moss or humus. This will allow the soil around your new plant's roots to retain moisture much more effectively.
Do I Need to Fertilize My Twisted Arrows Rush Plant?
If you are growing your Juncus in a container, used a balanced liquid fertilizer such as Jack's Indoor/Outdoor Plant Food once a month. Only use this fertilizer in their growing months and not in the winter. Using fertilizer in their dormancy period could damage them for the next growing season. If your plant is in your garden, use a slow-release granular fertilizer twice a year, once in the spring and once in the summer. Never fertilize in the fall or winter.
