Key Tips for Success: Malacoides are delightful indoor plants, true harbingers of spring.  For prolonged enjoyment Malacoides should not be placed in too warm of an environment.  In a heated room they should be put close to the window where it is usually a little cooler.  Pay attention to water; primulas are thirsty plants.  If the foliage turns yellow, it means the plants are too dry.  Over feeding can also burn this plants roots.
