Pachystachys Lutea (commonly known as Shrimp Plant) is a native of Mexico and is normally grown as a centerpiece in a combination pot or as a background plant in mixed beds. This upright grower can get three feet tall and has large leaves with an impressive bract at the tip of each stem that produce spectacular shrimp-shaped blooms.
Use a constant fee program of 150-200 ppm N. Maintain a pH between 5.8 - 6.2.
Cuttings vary in size between different plant families. These rooted starter plants will arrive ready to be transplanted in to your final container. If they are to be used in a landscape application, you will need to establish them in a 4 inch pot or an 1801 before planting outside.
