In stock

Position - Full sun or partially shaded positions outdoors. Indoors only in sunny positions otherwise they will lose their nice shape and colour. Flowering will only occur in good light.

Watering - can be watered all year round but allow to dry in winter in colder climates for short periods.

Feeding - 50% of recommended dosage monthly in growing period. The less fertiliser, the better the shape of the plant. Fertilisers high in nitrogen can produce larger plants with less colour.

Repotting - Best in baskets; can be left to overgrow their pots, or repotted in the warmer months in almost any well drained potting mix.
