Soil

Pansy grows in any type of well drained and organic matter rich soil. Add a layer of garden compost to enrich the soil with nutrients.

Sun/ Temperature

Pansy best grows in full sun, but it can be grown in partial shade too. Pansy thrives in cool temperature, warm and humid weather results in less number of blooms.

Watering

Water pansy regularly. Do not let soil gets dry. Do not over water it too.

Fertilizer

Use normal purpose fertilizer. As general rule feed more frequently when the plant is growing actively and putting up new growth. Avoid N-based fertilizer as it gives plant leggy look.
