Jacobinia velutina - Brazilian Plume, King's Crown


Jacobinia produces pink flowers but is difficult to grow. Provide medium light or partial sun and a moderately moist soil. Overwatering causes leaf browning and flower blasting. Repotting is done in March but should not be necessary every year. Ideal temperatures are between 60 and 85 degrees. Prune old plants each year after blooming to encourage new growth. Large plants can be topdressed rather than be repotted. Remove the flower when it fades.

Propagation is by stem cuttings taken at any time.
