Gomphrena globasa Pink Purple Button shaped flowers Plant

From the Amaranth family the flowers are small button shaped and very attractive in the sap green grayish leaves foliage. The plant gives out flowers which when dried have seeds in them. I have not tried collecting or  growing from seeds.
The plant grows in partial sunlight and loves to be watered regularly. Fond of well draining soil it also does not like over watering and the roots rot and may kill the plant.
The plant is prone to white fungus and white flies in winters and may also dry off in very hot summers if waterings are skipped.
Try to choose a sunny place if you wish to see blooms regularly. And let the flowers dry on the plant itself, and then trim off the tips to encourage bushy growth and more flowers.
The Amaranth family vibrant pink flowers are commonly used in hair decorations along with white shevanti plant since many years and brings back fond memories.
All the Best from Rizwana!
