LIGHT

Torenia Moon Indigo will grow best in partial to full shade.

WATER

Provide your Torenias with plenty of water as they do not like to dry out completely; water just before the soil is dry. During hot and dry times, more watering may be required, and during rainy and cool times, less watering may be needed. Be sure to avoid splashing water on the foliage and blooms when watering, as this can cause diseases.

FOOD

Fertilize 1–2 times a month using a liquid fertilizer or add a slow-release fertilizer to the soil according to instructions.

ADDITIONAL CARE

Torenia Moon Indigo typically don’t require deadheading, also known as the removal of spent blooms. However, if you notice your plants starting to get leggy or stretched out, feel free to trim the flowers and foliage back, and they will branch out and rebloom. Be sure to fertilize regularly.
