To effectively grow Lewisia cotyledon in the climate, the soil must be rich and well-drained, but not too dry. The soil must also have plenty of organic matter and it is recommended to avoid planting near the coast or in areas highly exposed to salt winds. This is because the air can cause the foliage to dry out and the flowers may not form correctly or may not hold up against the drying out.
To water properly, Lewisia cotyledon should be consistently and regularly watered, so that the soil is moist but not soggy. During times of drought, additional watering may be necessary, especially if the plant is in a pot. During colder conditions, the soil should be kept a bit more moist and the plant should be protected from direct frost.
When it comes to caring for Lewisia cotyledon, it benefits from a fertilizer that is high in phosphorus during the flowering period. This help the plant produce a better display of flowers. In colder regions, it is also beneficial to grow Lewisia cotyledon in a pot, because this will help to protect the plant from cold temperatures and frost.
Water regularly during the first growing season to establish a strong root system. Once established, Liatris is fairly drought tolerant.
The extremely polymorphic (variable) species Limnophila aromatica can be found growing in swampy or boggy soil in its native region of southeastern Asia. As an aquarium plant, limnophila aromatica is a beautiful addition to any high light aquascape. Depending on nutrient and light levels, the plants can be anything from a bright green to deep purple, with bronze edges on the leaves. Plants that reach the top of the aquarium will often begin to form emersed foliage. The flower is very pretty purple, and is slightly fragrant.
The plant is occasionally cultivated and harvested from the wild for its edible leafy stems. With its attractive flowers, the plant can be grown as an ornamental in gardens.

Linaria maroccana, or Moroccan Toadflax, is a small perennial shrub native to Morocco that typically reaches a mature height of 2-5 feet tall. It prefers full sun or semi-shade and needs regularly watering or having its soil moist for best performance. It produces beautiful flowers that come in shades of pink, white and off-white, blue, lavender, purple, red, crimson, vinous, and yellow and orange.
Linaria maroccana is generally grown in USDA Zone 9-11, and can handle cold temperatures well, being mature plant cold hardy to at least 30s F for a short time. In colder regions, where temperatures can drop below Zone 9, this plant can be grown in a container and brought indoors in winter.
When grown in pots, Linaria maroccana prefers a soil that is fertile, well-drained, and slightly acidic. It should receive regular watering and a twice yearly application of a slow-release fertilizer. It can also be pruned back in the early spring or late fall to control its size and shape. The plant will also benefit from regular deadheading of spent flowers to ensure a continuous production of blooms throughout the growing season.
