Planting & Care
At that time I did not care about the quality of soil and also gave only nitrogen fertilizer so the plant grew in uncontrollable proportion with very less flowers. I was fed-up with the wild growth of the bougainvillea plant, I wanted it to be very small, though not as small as a bonsai.

Sunlight: Full sun

Soil: well-drained soil

Water: Medium

Temprature: 40 degree F

Fertilizer: Apply any organic fertilizer

Care:
  • As bougainvillea generally blooms on new growth, you should cut back the branches that have finished flowering.
  • This will force plant to produce new growth and bougainvillea to bloom.
  • Because the new flowers develop at the new growth, the more they are pruned the more new growth will be encouraged.
  • Plants can be grown in containers and used around pools, giving a distinctive southern feel to an area.
  • They can also be espaliered or trained on a standard or grown in a large basket.
  • They are large billowing plants that have a nice texture as well as colorful flower bracts.

Methanolic extracts of flower bracts of Bougainvillea spectabilis are very good pH indicators. Flowers of Bougainvillea are edible, it can be eaten fresh and have gently bitter taste, thats gives feeling of refreshment. ... Infusion from flowers is drunk as a remedy for low blood pressure.
