This annual plant has a velvety, ruffled form that is often compared to a cockscomb, or even a brain. In fact, it’s commonly known as cockscomb or wool flower.
It seems like an exotic flower, but it’s not difficult to grow in the home garden. It adds a striking accent to other flowers in the garden.
Celosia is one plant that requires minimum maintenance. But let’s look at ideal conditions in terms of soil, light, drainage, and more.
Though it’ll thrive in nutrient-poor soil, you’ll aid its growth by adding soil amendments. Well-aged cow manure, peat, and leaf compost will all promote its growth.
|Maximum Reachable Height||upto 2 feet|
|Difficulty Level||Easy to grow|
Planting And Care
- Bright direct light.
- The soil should be well drained and fertile, rich in organic content.
- Poke your finger/plain small stick into the soil to check the moisture.

- Do not overwater the plant.
- As a rule of thumb, water the plant thoroughly in the summer and reduce watering in winter and rainy season.
