Lobelia cardianlis 'var.'?

829 Views 2 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  gpodio
I've always felt like my L. cardinalis is different to others' somehow. I want to know if they are different or perhaps, mine has nutrient deficiency.

You may notice the yellow markings and a hint of purple at the base of each leaf. The plant itself is actually a little smaller than the other "dwarf" form. Any help is appreciated.

Looks like regular old Lobelia cardinalis 'small form' to me. If it is staying smaller than most, it is probably because you are starving it of macronutrients and/or light.

Yes looks like regular LC, mine show such deficiencies when it's time to replace the root tabs under them.

Hope that helps
