Benefits of Periwinkle Plants

Ornamental Beauty :

The Periwinkle flowering plant comes in many vibrant shades like white, purple, and pink and will instantly add a pop of color to your home garden.

Attract Pollinators :

The blooms of the Periwinkle plant attract many pollinating insects such as butterflies, bees, and more. Pollination is very important to promote biodiversity.

Low Maintenance :

The flowers are very easy to care for and thrive well in tropical and subtropical countries such as India. However, the plant requires thorough watering and frequent pruning sometimes to help in its healthy growth.


Care Tips for a Periwinkle Plant

Watering :

The soil for the Periwinkle plant must be kept moist, especially during the growing season. Water plants consistently, but avoid water-logging.

Light :

The Periwinkle plant loves bright sunlight for at least 6-7 hours a day.

Placement :

Periwinkle is an outdoor plant. It should be kept in an area receiving bright sunlight. 

Fertilization :

Add nitrogen and phosphorus to the Periwinkle Plant to maintain good plant growth. You can also add dry banana peels as they are a rich source of nitrogen. You can also use Vermicompost every 2 weeks.

Ideal Soil Mix :

Periwinkle plants prefer acidic soil. Use cow dung as part of your soil mix as it will make the soil acidic. The ideal soil mix for this plant should be, Garden Soil (35%) + Cocopeat (30%) + Vermicompost (30%) + Neem Khali (5%)

Pruning :

Keep pruning the Periwinkle plant to encourage branch growth and give it more spread.

Pest Control :

Mealybugs and whiteflies are a big problem for the Periwinkle plant. Keep spraying the plant with neem spray every 2 weeks to help with pest control.
