The Bougainvillea is an extremely versatile plant which can be grown in a tree, a small pot sized plant, a hedge or a climber. They are a bright escape from any grey landscape and are very hardy. Growing white bougainvillea is no different from other kinds.
The bougainvillea is a very hardy plant which needs very little care.
They do not survive well in cold weather. Therefore they should be brought inside during winter seasons.
The pots in which the plants are grown should be kept moist but well-drained.
A healthy potted bougainvillea plant requires quite a fair amount of water. But, care should be taken that the soil is moist but not waterlogged. Waterlogging causes root rot and also pest infestation.
These plants should be watered sparingly to induce flowering. Ideally, the plant should be allowed to dry and wilt for a few hours before watering.
Bougainvillea does not grow well under shade. They should be exposed to lots of sunlight.
If the plants are being grown in cold areas, they should be brought indoors in winters.
This plant grows well in well-drained, yet moisture retentive soil to support its tender root system. Ideally, the soil should be of 5.5-6.5 pH.
Bougainvillea plants bear a small white flower at the end of its stem. This flower is surrounded by the white (they can be of other colours too) bracts which give these plants such a bright and beautiful appearance.
These plants are perennial.
Bougainvillea is a versatile plant which can be grown into a tree, shrub or climber. They can grow up to 30 feet depending on the variety.
The plant should be fed every two weeks during spring and fall and every three weeks during winter. A water-soluble fertilizer can be used in a balanced formula.
The fertilizer can be mixed with the water at the time of watering.
Fertilizers should not be added to dry soil and over fertilizing should be avoided.
The soft tips of the bougainvillea should be cut off using clippers during the growing season.
Growers are advised against repotting the plant as it has a very sensitive root-system.
If repotting becomes absolutely necessary, then care should be taken that the root- system is taken out as a whole.
These plants are very hardy and are usually not attacked by pests. But still, growers should be careful of caterpillars, mites, aphids etc.
Bougainvillea is usually used for ornamental purposes.
