Planting & Care
Cupheas grow best when they are planted in full, bright sun but are quite happy to have periods of light shade during heat of the afternoon. Plant your Cuphea in light, compost rich, well-drained soil.

Water regularly and thoroughly until they are well established, then watering can be reduced somewhat. Established plants can tolerate occasional periods of drought, but they grow best in evenly moist soil.Pinch back the tip of each stem when they reach 8"-10" tall to induce bushiness and create a more compact shape.

Feed your Cuphea monthly while actively growing, using a good all-purpose fertilizer, or feed them once in the spring with a slow release granular plant food.
