How to take care of Tecoma Plant
- Light: The plant loves the sun and will appreciate over eight hours of sunlight a day, if possible. It can survive when planted in partial shade, but it will not bloom to its full potential. It does not do well when planted in full shade.
- Soil: The plant will grow in most soils, including clay, sand, and rocky ground. It will also grow in loamy locations.
- Water: Mature plants will tolerate dry areas, but they will also grow in moist conditions. Even though they’re able to survive periods without rain, they do appreciate occasional watering during a particularly lengthy dry spell.
- Fertiliser: Additional fertilization may be helpful but unnecessary in most cases since the plant is naturally hardy. If you do choose to fertilize your plant plants periodically, make sure you also give water with each application. The fertilizer will not work if applied to dry ground.
