Hi all could someone please help me identify this plant it came from lidl 99p outside on a rack it was marked as primrose it just had the basic information I have put it on the window sill with my orchid thanks.
yeah, blown it up. I think I'm right
I reckon you are right, Hostafan1.
So do I
Temperature: Cool temperatures of 55 - 65°F (13 - 18°C) are best suited.
Light: Like many other flowering plants this species enjoys plenty of light, without direct sunlight. It can be tricky to get the right light without the temperature being too high.
Water: During the flowering season keep the soil moist at all times. Not enough water and the plant will begin to wilt.
Soil: A peat based potting mix is suggested.
Fertilizer: You will only need to feed these once before flowering and then once while in bloom. Use a diluted balanced liquid fertilizer half the advised strength stated on the label.
Air Humidity: If humidity levels within a room are low increase by placing the plant on a pebble humidity tray, and you can mist the leaves occasionally.
It is a perennial Primula obconica.
The cooler the room the longer last the flowers,
keep it moist but not wet.
Can cause allergies
I had one of these from Lidl , it lasted for years and bloomed most of the time . I had it on an eastern windowsill with a net curtain on the glass , and a window box full of geraniums outside . I don't know how it got enough light but it thrived
Thanks 4 all your help
