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

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.
