Sunlight: Plant Ipomoea in a position that receives full sun, with at least 6 hours of direct sunshine per day.
Soil: Make sure the soil is well-drained and rich in organic matter. Composting can increase soil fertility and structure.
Watering: Keep the soil damp but not wet. To avoid fungal problems, water the plant at the base. Reduce watering during wet seasons.
Fertilization: During the growing season, feed your Morning Glory plants with a balanced, all-purpose fertilizer every 4-6 weeks.
Pruning: Prune the plant back if it gets too invasive or to promote bushier growth. This is best done in the early spring.
