Bougainvillea plant care and instructions
Bougainvillea are easy to grow, maintain and flower! These plants are meant for outdoors/balconies getting a lot of sunlight. Water only once the soil is dry. While watering makes sure enough water is given that it starts to come out of the drainage hole. Bougainvilleas do particularly well in clay/terracotta pots. For Bougainvillea pruning time, watering & manuring & abundance of sunlight are the most important factors for great blooming. Normally hard pruning should be done between 15th October to 1st week of November. This does not apply to newly planted bougainvilleas. Compost should be applied from 1kg to 1.5 kg depending on the size of the pot & light watering to medium watering should be done daily if the pots are in full sun or if more than four hours of sunlight. NPK should be mixed in water & sprayed at least twice a month. Khurpi should be done once a fortnight. In the ground, the watering pattern would be once in three days. This is for winter.
