Planting and care

The soil for Pride of Barbados plants does not have to be especially fertile or high in organic matter. Poor sandy soils are fine for this plant. Soil pH can be acidic, neutral or alkaline. Good drainage is extremely important, though. The water must drain quickly away from the root zone.
Where the soil is heavy clay and drains very slowly, consider growing the tree in a container or making a raised planting site. Either soil or peat-based potting mixes are fine for these plants as long as they contain sand, perlite and vermiculite to provide fast drainage. A 16-inch diameter by 16-inch deep container with drain holes in the bottom is suitable.

Sunlight Soil Water Temperature Fertilizer
Full Sun to Partial Shade. standard soil, 1/5 sand added. Medium 10°C Apply any organic fertilizer

Caring for Caesalpinia pulcherima cremica

    Pride of Barbados plants should be watered deeply once or twice each week for the first year or two after planting. Once the plants become well established, they are highly drought-tolerant and should not need supplemental water but, for best growth and blooming, water them during prolonged droughts.

    The young plants can be planted in standard soil, 1/5 sand added. During spring and summer the plant requires a lot of water on regular basis. Supply the plants with tub plant fertilizer every 10 to 14 days from April until October. To maintain a bushy growth the young plants have to be pruned often. After the third year of growth or after the first flowering, respectively, the plant should then be pruned once a year only.

Harvesting

A warm, sunny and wind protected place is ideal
