Identify please

Post by riaz » October 5th, 2015, 10:55 pm

I have bought them from a nursery and he named in strange ways. Please identify attached images. Are these indoor or outdoor plants? If outdoor than required full sun or partial? Can I use NPK for them or only DAP is enough? How long should I repeat NPK or DAP doses? Any other important tips?

First one is Pseuderanthemum variegatum
Second one is Pseuderanthemum carruthersii

These plants are well suited for both shade and full sun, they dont need much fertilizer better to add compost every 2 months.. pinch the tips to make them bushy..

dont know about third one..

The first one is variegated Euphorbia tithymaloides, also called a jew's slipper because the red flowers are like shoes. Your second picture is perhaps that of variegated Cestrum (or raat ki raani). Identifying without flowers is quite difficult.
