How to Care for Cascadia Purple Gem Petunia Plants
Before you buy a Cascadia Purple Gem Petunia, make sure to read about the care instructions that are required and recommended to keep this plant healthy and thriving!
How Do I Water Cascadia Purple Gem Petunias?
Cascadia Purple Petunias thrive best in evenly moist, well-draining soil. We suggest watering your plant at a medium rate, or when you notice their soil is dry about 1 inch down. Be very careful when watering your petunia because they are very susceptible to root rot disease. This is caused when a plant is overwatered and its roots are sitting in standing water for far too long. Because these flowers are planted in hanging baskets often, make sure your basket has properly placed drainage holes to prevent any excess water from remaining in the container.
What Type Of Fertilizer Does Cascadia Purple Gem Petunia Require?
To keep your Cascadia Petunia in its best shape, we recommend feeding them every week while they are growing in the summer. For the best and biggest blooms, use a flower-focused fertilizer such as Espoma Flower Tone.
What is The Best Soil for My Cascadia Petunia?
Cascadia Petunias require rich, well-draining soil conditions. These plants can tolerate a wide range of pH levels and soil types including sandy, clay, loamy, etc. However, they must have properly draining soil to prevent any possibilities of root damage. The flower roots can rot very easily if they are not placed in their proper soil conditions.
How Much Sun Does My Purple Gem Petunia Need?
Purple Gem petunias love the sun! We suggest placing or planting your plant in a place that receives at least 6 to 8 hours of full sunlight each day. Although this annual can survive in partial sun and partial shade areas it will bloom best when only in those conditions for a few hours. Remember the more shade your flower gets, the less your flower will bloom.
