Superbells® Evening Star Calibrachoa Care
Deadheading is not necessary to produce continuous flowers. Lightly trim this plant to promote branching and more flowers. Water the container only after the top of the soil becomes dry. Proper watering is the key to success when growing Calibrachoa Superbells Evening Star. Fertilize regularly with a water-soluble balanced fertilizer with a nutrient ratio at or close to 24-12-17. If you have been fertilizing regularly and the leaves have begun to yellow, the pH may have become out of range for proper iron uptake. Add Chelated iron or spray your plants with an iron foliar feed.
This plant is hardy in USDA zones 9 through 11. It may be difficult to grow as a house plant because of its watering and fertilizing needs, in addition to its high light requirement.
Superbells® Evening Star Calibrachoa Spacing
Space plants between 8 and 12 inches apart in a garden setting. They may be planted slightly closer together in a container but regularly trim them if they become too crowded.
