How to Care for Burgundy Celosia
Before you buy Burgundy Celosia, make sure to read about the care instructions that are required and recommended to keep this plant healthy and thriving!
How Do I Water Burgundy Celosia?
Burgundy Celosia requires evenly moist well-drained soil to thrive. However, it is important not to overwater because if they sit in standing water, they will die. A regular watering schedule will be the most beneficial for the plant's success. We recommend watering at the base of the plant to keep their foliage dry and to prevent any leaf spot or diseases.
What Type Of Fertilizer Does Burgundy Celosia Require?
To keep your Burgundy Celosia in its best shape, we recommend feeding them every 10 days in the summer. Any liquid fertilizer that has been diluted slightly will work perfectly. This will ensure your plant's flowers will bloom to their best potential. Avoid fertilizing in the fall and winter time to minimize the risk of any plant damage.
What is The Best Soil for Burgundy Celosia?
Burgundy Celosia requires rich, well-draining soil. It is not particular to a specific pH and can tolerate urban polluted locations. The well-draining soil will help avoid any possibility of root rot, a disease this plant is susceptible to. However, this plant does require its soil to be moist at all times. It is a tricky but important balance for your plant to get enough water and have its soil be moist without overwatering at the same time.
How Much Sun Do Burgundy Celosia Plants Need?
Burgundy Celosia prefers a sunny location that receives a sunlight each day. Even though they can survive in part sun, they do their best when given full sun. If you are planting this annual in a garden, place it in a location that can be mostly shaded throughout the day. If you are using it in a container outside, make sure you place it in a location that does not get lots of direct sunlight. This will avoid any risk of burning the leaves or causing any other damage.
