Plant Care - Persian

Light: Bright light location is preferred.
Water: Moderately moist soil is preferred.  Water thoroughly when just the soil surface is dry to the touch.  Do not allow plants to stand in water.
Temperature: Moderate - Prefers 65-70 daytime's and 60-65 nights.
Availability: April through October.
Color Range: Pale violet, blue and white.
Lasting Quality: 3-4 weeks as and indoor potted plant.  Continues to flower for 3-4 months if it can be planted outdoors in partly sunny location.
Key Tips for Success: The bushy Exacum offers a profusion of fragrant star like flowers with prominent yellow stamens surrounded by waxy, oval leaves.  Over watering can be a problem so be sure to provide good drainage.  Warm, humid, bright "greenhouse" contagions will prolong flowering as will planting it outdoors if temperatures permit.
