The Q&A Archives: Penta's

Question: I have two Penta plants that are planted in full sun-but I noticed they get morning shade and by 12 then it is full sun the rest of the day-one of two are starting to turn yellow-got any suggestions?

Answer: It sounds as though your plants are in the right spot in the garden so I wonder if you are overwatering? Pentas like the soil to dry out slightly between waterings. If the soil is slow to drain, the roots won't be too happy. You might try adjusting your watering and feeding with a slow release fertilizer. Hope this helps!
