The plant likes to grow in diffused sunlight. It can reach upto height of 8 feet. Pruning of this plant will ensure more bushy growth and better blooming.
Watering & Sunlight: Sunlight availability of morning hours will also be an added advantage for its better growth. This plant likes to grow in moist soil. Hence do not wait for drying up of soil. However, we must ensure that drainage in pot is available. If atmospheric temperature is less than 35 degree C, it can be grown in full sunlight as well. During harsh summer, it needs to be shifted in shady area.
Soil: Drainage in pot is necessary by making sufficient holes in bottom. To make the ideal potting mix, 20 % drainage media (river sand/ Leca/ Perlite/ Pumice or rice husk- use any one of them) in potting mix should be available. In rest of the potting mix, we should mix Cocopeat (20 %), vermi – compost (20 %) and garden soil (40 %) in equal ratio. Use of Neem Cake (5-10%), will improve further quality of potting mix.
Ornamental use: Yes
