Bougainvillea care instructions
Placement: throughout the summer it is good to be exposed in an open space, it tolerates the sun; when the temperature drops, it is brought inside
Humidity: it gets wet constantly, if you keep it indoors it sprays.
Substrate: neutral peat or a very loose mixture
Propagation: by semi-lignified shoots, rooted directly in peat
Characteristics: the colored bracts appear faster when the plant is exposed to the sun, therefore it is recommended that the bougainvillea be kept outside during the whole warm period of the year. In autumn, cuttings are made to form the crown, which helps in sprouting and flowering next year. On new shoots, the leaves appear as brightly colored cups, and the white flowers are inside them.
