How do you grow Penta seeds?
Sowing Seed Indoors:

- Sow pelletized seeds in seed starting formula but do not cover.
- Keep the soil moist at 75 degree F.

Just so, how fast do Pentas grow?
For best results, plant pentas in late spring in a site that receives full sun and has well-drained soil. Most pentas grow about 15 inches wide and 2 to 3 feet tall, so be sure to leave ample space for them to grow if planting in beds.
do Pentas need to be deadheaded? Deadhead Pentas flowers to encourage more blooms. Young Pentas plant care should include pinching off the stem ends to force a more compact plant. Mulch around in-ground plants to conserve water and repel weeds.
