Plant: Climbing bush. In its juvenile phase, it behaves as a small shrub in which its branches, after a vegetative period, begin to lengthen its internodes and roll on those supports that allow it to climb.
Location: As an indoor plant, we will choose the most illuminated places in the house. Outside, preferably in full sun, to favour a more intense and lasting bloom. Used as a climbing plant, it is perfect to create vegetal walls or flowered screens in gardens, terraces and balconies.
Flowering: From spring to mid-summer.
Soil: It prefers a fertile and light substrate to avoid waterlogging. It is a very rustic plant, so a special substrate for outdoor plants may be a good choice.
Temperature: Avoid minimum temperatures below 10ºC
Irrigation: It is a plant quite resistant to drought; an excess of water will harm him remarkably. It requires irrigations as far apart as possible in time, without causing the substrate to be completely dry.
Fertilizer: We will choose balanced fertilizers richer in phosphorus and potash and micronutrients. Special fertilizers for flower plants are advised.
