  • Sunlight

    Bougainvillea thrives in full sunlight. Plant it in a location where it can receive at least 6-8 hours of direct sunlight per day
  • Watering

    While Bougainvillea is drought-tolerant once established, it benefits from regular watering during the growing season to encourage blooming. Allow the soil to dry out slightly between waterings to prevent overwatering
  • Soil

    Bougainvillea prefers well-draining soil with a slightly acidic to neutral pH. Amend heavy clay soil with organic matter such as compost or cocopeat to improve drainage. Alternatively use Naturally Green customised Potting Mix
  • Fertilization

    Feed Bougainvillea with NGd fertilizer formulated for flowering plants once a month during the growing season (spring and summer). Reduce fertilization in fall and winter when growth slows down
