Celosia has a great variety of species, there are about 60 of them, the most famous of which in Russia are spikelets, spikelets and combs. They received these names because of the shape of the inflorescence.

Water the plant Celosia

 Take special care, however, that you only moisten the bare areas, so to speak, and never pour water on the flowers. Use a water shower and water at room temperature.
