Plantain "Variegated" - Live Plant


Variegated Plantain (Plantago Major Variegata)

4in pot size

Plantain is a low growing perennial common weed to many found in most backyards. Very tolerant of many soils. Sometimes referred to as the "band aid" plants.

Plantain can tolerate a range of light conditions. It grows well in full sun to partial shade.

Well-draining soil is suitable. Plantain is adaptable to different soil types and can even grow in compacted soils.

While Plantain is drought-tolerant, regular watering helps maintain healthy growth. Water when the soil is dry to the touch.

Provide sufficient spacing between plants to allow for air circulation. This can help prevent fungal diseases.

Plantain is not heavy-feeder. It can thrive in poor soils but benefits from occasional fertilization with a balanced, all-purpose fertilizer.

Trim or mow the plant if you want to control its size or encourage fresh growth. Regular harvesting of leaves is also a form of pruning.

Medicinal Uses:
Plantain leaves have been used traditionally for their medicinal properties, including wound healing and as a soothing remedy for skin irritations. Consult with a healthcare professional before using it for medicinal purposes.

Pests and Diseases:
Plantain is resistant to many pests and diseases. However, keep an eye out for aphids or snails. Good garden hygiene can help prevent issues.
