Planting and 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 Soil Water Temperature Fertilizer
Full sun well-drained soil Medium 40 degree F Apply any organic fertilizer
