Vaijayanti (Red) Plant - Basic care, Watering, Soil, and Flowering

BRIEF DESCRIPTION

Vaijayanti is a flowering plant described in old Hindu scriptures of Vishnu Sahasranama and even Mahabharata. The word means "the garland of victory" and often a garland made of the flower is offered in worship to Lord Vishnu. It is known as Canna lily in English although it has no relation to the lily family of plants. The plant grows well in warm and humid climates.

BASIC CARE

Vaijayanti plant is easy to care for and can be grown in containers indoors too.

LIGHTING

Vaijayanti plant should be grown in full sun even though the plant can grow in partial shade as well. Sunlight can affect the flowering of the plant. More sunlight means better flowering and shady areas promote leggy growth which can cause it to bend.

FLOWERING

The plant has wide and huge bright green leaves that look like banana leaves. The plant also has large showy funnel-shaped flowers. The flowers can be red, yellow or orange or a combination of colours. Both the foliage and the inflorescence make the plant very attractive. Flowers appear from summer to fall.

WATERING

Water the plant regularly. Water the plant enough so that it is moderately moist but not soggy.

SOIL

The plant prefers a well-drained neutral or slightly acidic soil. They can tolerate bog-like conditions too but not for prolonged periods. Soil should be rich and you can help with that by adding in organic content. Also, apply a layer of mulch to retain moisture as the plant appreciates a moist soil.

SIZE

The plant grows about 2 to 3 feet.

FERTILIZERS

The plant should be fertilized once a month during the growing season with a balanced fertilizer diluted to half the strength. Use organic content like Farm Yard Manure at the time of planting. Vaijayanti requires regular application of fertilizer to produce good blooms. Always water the plant before fertilizing.

PESTS

Caterpillars can harm the plant by eating the leaves. Remove them manually and immediately treat the plant with appropriate pesticides.

BENEFITS

Vaijayanti can be used as an ornamental plant or even for ground cover. You can easily grow it in a container and create the perfect focal point in any room. Flowers are used in Hindu rituals. The flowers are attractive to bees and butterflies.
