Cultural information: These mini potted "Carnations" are relatively new to the indoor flowering house plant market. As with their cut flower cousins they can be found in a wide selection of colors. The flowers are quite fragrant and excellent for cutting.

Mini Carnations are used as temporary flowering house plant. Once bloomed out, the plant should be discarded. With this in mind potted Mini Carnations can be placed any where in the home or office except in direct sun shine. Direct sunshine will increase the plants growth rate causing it to bloom out sooner. Water your mini Carnation when the soil is dry to the touch. Don't allow the plant to sit in a saucer of water, this is a quick way to end up with root rot. There is no need to fertilize your indoor Mini Carnation plant.
