Planting And Care
- Keep the soil moist, but never soggy, as the Torenia wishbone flower is susceptible to root rot. Care of wishbone plants should include a regular fertilization schedule twice a month with a plant food high in phosphorus, the middle number in the fertilizer ratio (NPK).
- The plant grows well in shade or semi-shade, but produces the most flowers in full sun with adequate irrigation. Leggy plants indicate that the plants need more light.
- These flowers prefer organically rich, loamy soil with a slightly acidic soil pH. Excellent soil drainage is essential to preventing root rot. To improve the soil quality, consider mixing in some compost at the time of planting.
- Wishbone flowers have moderate water needs. Water whenever the soil feels dry to the touch, but make sure your plants aren’t sitting in soggy soil.
Application of Fertilizer
- To keep wishbone flowers healthy and blooming, provide a balanced, all-purpose fertilizer roughly every few weeks throughout the growing season (spring to fall). You can either use a liquid fertilizer or a slow-release granule fertilizer, following package instructions.
