Caring for Cuphea Hyssopifolia

  • Maintain a growing area that offers full sun to partial shade for best growth; cut back neighboring plants if they create excessively shaded conditions.
  • Maintain moist, well-drained soil. Irrigate frequently, but avoid creating soil that remains fully saturated.
  • Rewater when the top layer of soil feels dry to the touch.
  • Lay a 2- to 3-inch layer of organic matter such as compost on the soil surrounding Mexican heather without allowing the compost to come into contact with stems.
  • Prune lightly with pruning shears any time of year to create the desired appearance.
  • Prune mature plants severely in spring or winter to encourage regrowth; pinch the tips of younger plants to "encourage bushiness and more compact growth," suggests the University of Florida extension.
  • Monitor Mexican heather plants regularly for abnormalities or the presence of beetles.
  • Though these plants tend to resist problems, they occasionally face pest problems such as flea beetle infestations.
  • Examine plants for the presence of flea beetles Look for long-legged beetles with metallic blue-green bodies measuring 1/16 to 1/8 inch in length. Beetles jump when disturbed.
  • Look for damage caused by adults, which feed with greatest intensity during spring; though the white larvae feed on roots, they typically result in little damage.
  • Examine leaves and stems for holes and a ragged appearance from beetle chewing.
