Note: The photo represents a typical plant, plants are selected randomly from available stock and may vary.
Insigne is well suited to outdoor growing in almost all parts of Australia although areas that do not experience cool winters may not be able to flower as well. Insigne can take full sun to partial shade, higher shade may prevent flowering. Will only do well In a good well drained potting mix. In cold and wet climates keep plant dry in winter, if outdoors it must be out of the weather. Fertilize well when new growth appears in Spring and
keep plant well watered all through the growing season, reduce watering in winter to encourage
wer initiation. Plants flower for 3 to 4 weeks In late Autumn. Plants can be cut back when looking tired to encourage new growth.
