    The Beautical SuperCal Petchoa requires consistent moisture but does not like to be waterlogged. Water the plant when the top inch of soil feels dry to the touch. Typically, this might mean watering once every few days, but it can vary depending on the environmental conditions. Aim to provide the equivalent of 1 to 2 gallons per square foot per week, adjusting for rainfall and temperature, to maintain even moisture without overwatering.

  • sunLight

    Beautical SuperCal Petchoa thrives in full to partial sunlight and should be placed in a spot where it receives at least 4 to 6 hours of sunlight daily. An east or west-facing window would be ideal, providing bright, indirect light without exposing the plant to the harsh midday sun.

  • thermometerTemperature

    Beautical SuperCal Petchoa prefers moderate temperatures, ideally between 60-75 degrees Fahrenheit. While it can tolerate short periods outside this range, the plant should not be exposed to temperatures below 50 degrees Fahrenheit or above 85 degrees Fahrenheit to prevent stress and damage.

  • scissorsPruning

    Prune your Beautical SuperCal Petchoa to encourage bushier growth and more blooms. Deadhead spent flowers regularly to promote continuous flowering. The best time to prune is in the late winter or early spring before new growth begins, cutting back to healthy growth just above a leaf node.

    SuperCal Petunia requires a well-draining potting mix, with a pH level between 5.5 to 6.0. Optimal soil can be created by mixing two parts peat moss with one part perlite or coarse sand to ensure good drainage and aeration. Regular feeding with a balanced fertilizer will keep the plant thriving.

  • circleLife cycle

    The × Petchoa Beautical Cinnamon, a hybrid between petunias and calibrachoas, begins its life cycle with seed germination, which occurs under warm conditions with adequate moisture. Following germination, it enters a vegetative stage of rapid leaf and stem growth, during which it will develop a bushy appearance. As the plant matures, flower buds form and then bloom, revealing the characteristic cinnamon-colored flowers. The flowering stage can last several weeks to months with proper care, including deadheading to encourage continuous blooming. After flowering, the plant will produce seeds if pollination occurs, although hybrid plants like the Petchoa may have reduced fertility. Eventually, as cool temperatures arrive or growing conditions decline, the plant will enter senescence, completing its annual life cycle.

      Spring-Early Summer

    • The × Petchoa Beautical Cinnamon, commonly known as a hybrid between petunias and calibrachoas, is typically propagated through cuttings, as this method preserves the characteristics of the hybrid. The most popular technique for propagating this plant involves taking stem cuttings during the late spring or early summer when the plant is actively growing. Cuttings should be about 3-4 inches (approximately 7.5-10 centimeters) long, with several leaves, and the lower leaves should be removed. The cut end of the cutting is usually dipped in a rooting hormone to enhance root development and then placed into a well-draining soil mix or a starting medium like perlite or vermiculite. The environment should be kept humid, which can be achieved by covering the cuttings with a plastic dome or placing them in a propagator. Maintaining a consistent temperature of around 70-75 degrees Fahrenheit (approximately 21-24 degrees Celsius) will encourage rooting, and roots typically form within a few weeks, after which the new plants can be transplanted.
