You can achieve great results growing lisianthus with patience and close attention to temperature and water control. Flowering is initiated by 3 important factors: temperatures, light intensity, and day length.

When 4-5 leaves have developed, transplant into the garden 6-8 inches apart. Pinch back plants to the third node to encourage bushy growth. Direct sowing is not recommended. Cultivation: Full sun or part shade, light shade in hottest climates. Moderate water; give regular moisture early in the season, avoid over-watering as plants become established.

Thick long strong stems support the heavy flowers.
