Just so, how do you take care of lisianthus?

Growing Conditions

  1. Light: Lisianthus thrives in bright, indirect light.
  2. Water: During the growing season, water frequently, letting the soil dry out between waterings.
  3. Soil: A rich, peat-based potting soil with excellent drainage is beneficial.

Also, why is my lisianthus wilting? Watch the leaves to see if they are wilting, if they are and you have been watering it enough move it to a larger pot. I use 16 ounce drinking cups for lisianthus, it seems an 8 ounce cup is too small. Make sure there are holes in the bottom of the pot or cup so excess water can drain out.

Additionally, how long do lisianthus plants last?

If you have this happy situation when growing lisianthus, don't hesitate to remove the top flowers for indoor bouquets. Cut flowers of the lisianthus plant last up to two weeks in water.

Do you deadhead lisianthus?

Lisianthus, prairie gentian, is an annual with roselike flowers. Each blossom lasts for several weeks, and plants bloom nonstop. Popular cultivars are hybridized from native prairie gentians. Deadhead or cut blooms for bouquets to stimulate growth.
