    Plant Care: Upon receiving your live plants, it's essential to offer them water promptly to rejuvenate them after their journey. Position the plant in an area with indirect sunlight, allowing it to gradually regain its vitality.

    Repotting Instructions: Once the plant has fully recovered, you may contemplate repotting it in nutrient-rich soil, either within its current decorative pot or a new one. Ensure the selected pot features adequate drainage holes to prevent overwatering, especially if the decorative pot lacks these holes.

        Plant Care

        Light & Temperature

        • Bright, Indirect Sunlight: Place your Ruellia Simplex Trio where it receives bright, indirect sunlight. These plants prefer partial to full sunlight but can tolerate some shade.
        • Morning Sun: Morning sunlight is often gentler than the harsh afternoon sun. If possible, position your plants where they receive morning light.
        • Temperature Range: Ruellia Simplex Trio prefers temperatures between 70°F to 85°F (21°C to 29°C). They can tolerate slightly cooler temperatures but should be protected from frost.
        • Overwintering: In cooler climates, consider overwintering your Ruellia indoors or in a greenhouse to protect them from frost and cold snaps.
        • Monitor for Stress: Keep an eye on your plants for signs of stress. If the leaves appear scorched or they're not flowering well, adjust their light exposure. Some midday shade during hot summers may be beneficial.
        • Artificial Light: If you're growing Ruellia indoors, consider providing supplemental artificial light, especially during the winter months when natural light may be limited.


        • Consistent Moisture: These plants prefer consistently moist soil. Aim to keep the soil evenly moist, but not waterlogged.
        • Frequent Checking: Regularly check the top inch of the soil. When it feels dry to the touch, it's time to water.
        • Morning Watering: Water your Ruellia plants in the morning to allow any excess moisture on the leaves to dry during the day. This helps prevent fungal issues.
        • Deep Watering: When you water, do so deeply to encourage the roots to grow deeply into the soil. Shallow watering can lead to shallow root systems.
        • Mulching: Applying a layer of mulch around the base of the plants helps retain soil moisture and reduce weed competition.
        • Adjust for Weather: During hot, dry spells, you may need to water more frequently. In cooler or rainy periods, reduce watering to prevent over-saturation.


        • Use a balanced, all-purpose liquid fertilizer.
        • Apply the fertilizer during the growing season, typically in spring and early summer.
        • Dilute the fertilizer to half strength to prevent over-fertilization.
        • Feed your plants approximately once every 4 to 6 weeks.
        • Water the plants before and after applying fertilizer to avoid stressing the roots.
        • Avoid excessive fertilization, as it can lead to excessive foliage growth at the expense of blooms.

        By following these fertilization practices, you'll help your Ruellia Simplex Trio produce an abundance of colorful blooms and maintain healthy, lush foliage throughout the growing season.

        General Tips

        • Watering: Maintain consistently moist but not waterlogged soil. Water your plants when the top inch of soil feels dry to the touch. Be cautious not to overwater, as this can lead to root rot.
        • Fertilization: Feed your Ruellia Simplex Trio with a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer during the growing season (spring through summer) every 4-6 weeks. Follow the recommended dosage on the fertilizer label.
        • Pruning: Trim back leggy or overgrown stems to encourage bushier growth and more prolific flowering. Pruning is best done in early spring.
        • Mulching: Apply a layer of organic mulch around the base of your plants to help retain soil moisture, regulate soil temperature, and deter weed growth.
        • Pests and Disease: Keep an eye out for common garden pests like aphids and spider mites. If you notice an infestation, treat your plants with organic pest control methods promptly. Ensure good air circulation to prevent fungal diseases.
        • Soil: Ruellia Simplex Trio prefers well-draining soil. Amending your garden bed with organic matter can improve soil structure and fertility.
        • Repotting: If you're growing your Ruellia Simplex Trio in containers, consider repotting every 2-3 years to refresh the soil and provide more room for growth.
        • Winter Care: In colder climates, protect your plants from frost and cold temperatures. You can overwinter them indoors or cover them with frost blankets when frost is expected.
        • Wildlife: These plants are attractive to bees and butterflies, making them a great addition to pollinator-friendly gardens.
        • Enjoy the Variety: Appreciate the diverse colors of your Ruellia Simplex Trio – pink, white, and blue. Their vibrant blooms add character to your garden.
