After Care
Pincushion plants are an excellent choice for growing in containers. If they are grown as house plants they enjoy spending their summer months outside in a sunny location, but must be moved back indoors before the temperature drops below 55 degrees F. It should be kept in a sunny location with a room temperature of 65-70 degrees. When active growth slows during the winter, watering should be cut back. Never allow the pot to stand in water.
