Plume Celosia (Cockscomb) – Red

  • Celosia is an annual plant cultivated for its strange looking flowers that resemble roosters’ head, that’s why it is also called as cockscomb.
  • Cockscomb flowers are also known as Wool Flowers or Brain Celosia, suggestive of a highly colored brain.
  • The flowers belong to the amaranth family, Amaranthaceae.
  • Cockscomb blooms with a compacted crested head 2-5 inches across, on leafy stems that are 12-28 inches long.
  • The flower’s name is suggestive of a rooster’s comb.
  • It would make a great home/office/event decoration this festive season.
SOIL
  • In order to enjoy the bright color of Celosia flowers they need moist well-drained soil.
  • They love organic amendments that improve drainage, as celosia does not like wet conditions.
  • A rich soil will support fast growth, before planting add in plenty of manure, organic matter or compost.
FERTILIZER
  • Fertilize once a month using a nutrient-rich compost or a liquid nitrogen fertilizer.
LIGHT
  • For best results, plant Celosia in full sun or partial shade (8 hours per day).

  • Watering once every 5 to 12 days depending on your climate.
  • Water carefully around only the base of cockscomb so that the stems, leaves and flowers.
