  • Add a general purpose fertilizer every 4-6 weeks. Thunbergia plants do not tolerate droughts very well.
  • Keep the soil well watered, especially when young, and during hot and dry weather. If grown in containers, be vigilant that they do not dry out.
  • Keep young plants well weeded, until they get established and begin to climb. Thunbergia plants can be trimmed, as needed.
  • Plants need the support of a fence, trellis or post. Train young plants to reach the support.
