Developing my knowledge all the time. I love growing plants: barely any space on my windowsills, nor on my patio as it's full of pots. #renting.

Evicted #celosia out of its large container. Giving it a chance to keep going in its own pot. 🤞🏼 20/10/18

I'm really not sure what's going on with this #celosia it's been such a disappointment but it keeps trying so hard! I'm going to dig it out of this container to plant bulbs this weekend but I might put in its own little pot and see what happens!! #purple 16/10/18

I am finding this plant so interesting! #celosia it starts growing new flowers on top of old but then some of them seem too heavy and they keep drooping while others seem fine. Is it a #mutant plant!! 😊

Well not sure what’s going on here. Had thought it was very unhappy and dying. I moved it to a sightly shadier spot and now it looks like there’s #newgrowth on top of the old flowers! Is this normal? 13/07/18 #celosia

@bluefox23 Oh those are one of my favorites. I saved my seed from last year and got orange and yellow this year also from GT friends. Don’t forget they are edible and good tasting too. They sure pretty up a bland looking salad. I think @cyndi is correct on them going to seed. Tiny tiny little black seeds.

Thanks @tkept i really wanted one of these this year but since I've had it I hadn't thought it was very happy. But it seems to be doing its own thing. 😊

I've only just realised that the leaves have changed colour! It wasn't until I looked at old photos that I noticed it originally had green leaves. I've read that this is down to a phosphorus deficiency but that it doesn't mean it needs a feed of phosphorus. #advice anyone know what I can do, or is it too late? #celosia

Depending on type some of them do change leaf color.

16/05/18 is my #celosia ok? The leaves seem to be turning brown/yellow. The flowers are also turning brown. Not had this before so don’t know if this is just natural or if I’m killing it somehow!!! #advice #help #advice-celosia

Check the usual things over/under watering and is it too exposed maybe moved the pot somewhere else, sorry can't think of anything else

1w
comment
bluefox23

@jaynehynesburton Yes I'm thinking it's one of those! Will check conditions celosia like but had thought I'd got it in a place that matched. I've been watering it daily when hot but less so when cooler! 🤷‍♀️

@jaynehynesburton I'd been looking forward to getting one for the first time this year and will be gutted if it dies quickly! Will move it to give it more sun and see what happens! 🤞🏼😬

Trim off any bad/dead/brown parts and it should do better. Helps put energy into healthy new growth. Check your soil make sure not to dry or to wet. Also keep eye out for any pest as well. So can get a jump on #natural #pestcontrol if need be. Look under the tags like above and #links #information #neem and others to find ideas and #advice to help out even more. We all want each other to be successful. Best wishes xoxo

I got mine off my auntie's plants in Kansas last September. They were even the same colour as yours! After the flowers fade, you can shake out the seeds - small black shiny things. You'll gets thousands of them if It's been pollinated 👍
