Plant Care
Watering

Vincas need regular watering but do not overwater as they are drought tolerant. Do not water late in the day so that the soil has a chance to dry out before night. Only water when the top 1-2 inches of soil are dry. Pests and diseases are usually not an issue with this plant.

Fertilizer

Use a 10-10-10 nitrogen, phosphorous, potassium fertilizer. It can be either water soluble or granular. Using Miracle Gro can be another option. This can quickly green up the plant and encourage better blooming.

Light

Vinca minor grows in partial sun, partial shade, and full shade. It tolerates deep shade conditions but may burn in direct sunlight. For best results, plant them in partial shade. Also, they are a good choice for a ground cover for an area with dry shade.

Temperature

Annual vincas prefer to be grown in a very warm environment and this is why many growers have difficulty with them. Daytime temperatures should be around 82˚F (±2˚F), and at night, around 68˚F (±1˚F). Temperatures below 64˚F can stunt plant growth and cause leaves to turn yellow.

Repotting

Dig a hole at least twice as wide as the plant root ball, using a shovel or a garden trowel. Place the plant in the hole with the top of the root ball even with the top of the soil. Planting too deeply often smothers the crown -- the point where the stems join the roots -- and may result in death of the plant.
