How to care for Petunia

    Place in a bright room that is sun drenched almost all day. Or directly in a south-facing window.

  • Watering need: Very high demand

    This plant really loves water and doesn’t like to dry up! It’s hard to overwater it, but even a water-loving plant can get overwatered. Always feel the soil before watering - it should feel damp but not wet. Squeeze a bit of soil between your fingers - if water seeps out it’s still wet.
