5. Lanceolate pentas, or herbaceous pentas
The pentas deserves its title of one of the most valuable indoor plants that can bloom almost all year long without interruption. This is a modern and fashionable plant with acrylic colors of inflorescences, which is perfect in everything - and the details of the structure, and texture, and color combinations.
Indoor pentases in height are limited to 20-50 cm. But this does not prevent them from taking a deserved place in the list of indoor plants with massive inflorescences. Evergreen dwarf shrubs with numerous shoots and large, lanceolate, oppositely sitting leaves of emerald green or dark green with a cold tint of color create charming compact bushes - an ideal backdrop for a flower show.
In the pentas, the lanceolate inflorescences reach only 10 cm in diameter. But thanks to the almost perfect shape and density of the arrangement of flowers, they produce a very impressive effect.
The small tubular flowers of the lanceolate pentas with a perfect "star" of the five-petal corolla appear to be flawless. They sit quite tightly in an umbrella-shaped hemisphere shield, and each individual flower, despite the massiveness of the entire inflorescence, is perfectly visible.
The color scheme of lanceolate pentasa includes bright, acrylic, candy tones. White, pink, red and purple are presented both in “pure” form, and in two-color variations (almost always in the center of “stars” there is a contrasting round spot).
- Location: bright diffused lighting, sunny windowsill, but protected from direct rays.
- Temperature for pentas lanceolate: normal room temperature, not lower than 15 degrees, with protection from drafts.
- Air humidity: high or medium, can be sprayed.
- Watering lanceolate pentasa: abundant, uniform, rain or soft water (avoid drought, in winter it is necessary to reduce the moisture content of the substrate).
- Top dressing: once every 2 weeks with fertilizers for flowering plants, in winter - once every 1.5 months.
- Transfer: annually in February-March.
- Soil for pentas lanceolate: versatile, lightweight.
- Reproduction methods: stem and apical cuttings, seeds.
Pentas grows quickly and easily loses its compactness. It can be formed by pinching the tops of the shoots or by shortening the elongated shoots in the spring before budding begins. Pentasies in a neglected state are easily rejuvenated by a more cardinal haircut.
