  1. Fertilization. Fertilize celosia with liquid fertilizer once a month.
  2. Humidity. The plant grows well in containers but indoor air in homes remains too dry for flowers toflourish.
  3. Keep it warm. As celosia is a tropical plant it loves the warm and humid climate.
  4. Grow in full sun.
  5. Do mulching.
  6. Deadhead Flowers.
  7. Look for pests.

How often should you water celosia? Water celosia three to four times a week, just enough to keep the soil from drying out completely. Reduce watering during fall to twice per week, and again in winter to once per week. Never allow the soil to become soggy, or the plant will rot and-die.

Do celosia plants come back every year? Celosia can bloom from June until frost. Deadheading is not necessary in fall, as the plant is not likely to bloom again. Celosia aretender perennials (in Zones 10-12) grown as annuals.

Is celosia toxic to dogs? Celosia is in the Amaranthaceae plant family and are not poisonous to dogs or cats :-)Celosia is an annual plant I have two of them. They look pretty much like the celosia.

How big do celosia plants get? Depending on the variety, celosias can have a mature height from six inches to three feet in the garden. The plants stay more compact when you grow them in containers versus the ground. All of the tall varieties of celosias should have a place in the cutting_garden.
