How to care for Callistemon Viminalis


Callistemon Viminalis is a great choice for beginner plant parents because it is easy to care for!


Callistemon Viminalis should be watered regularly, allowing the soil to dry out between waterings.


Callistemon Viminalis loves a well-draining soil. Perlite and vermiculite help with drainage, while coco coir adds organic matter, so a good potting soil mix will have all three. You can improve store-bought soil by adding some perlite to it.


Callistemon Viminalis is not known to cause harm to humans or pets.
