Campanula is a well-known garden bloomer that also does well indoors and flowers richly with characteristic flowers that have a high ornamental value. Depending on the species, the plant offers white, pink, lilac, or purple bells with five petals. The flowers can be attached to hanging tendrils, but they can also bloom on top of the plant. The green consists of fresh green blades or is soft and herbaceous. The best-known houseplant of the company is probably the Star of Bethlehem, a real room classic.
The Campanula thrives best in a place in the semi-shade. The plant likes enough light, but no direct sunlight. Direct sunlight can damage the leaves and thus reduce the ornamental value. For example, place the plant a few meters from a window on the west or east, a little further in front of a window on the south and it can do well in front of a window on the north.
It is recommended to water the soil once every 2 days in the summer and keep it moist. Make sure that there is no layer of water at the bottom of the pot because this will cause root rot. In the summer months, you can choose to give some extra plant nutrition. Do this once a month and never give more than the dosage, preferably a little less. Furthermore, the Campanula is a hardy plant and it could also go outside.
Campanula belongs to the bell family and is most common around the Mediterranean and Caucasian Mountains.
If Campanula suffers from vermin, it is important to control it as soon as possible using a biological or, if desired, a chemical pesticide.
