Planting and care

This is Indoor Plant.

Sunlight Soil Water Temperature Fertilizer
Bright light, but avoid direct sunlight in summer. Loamy soil/ Sandy soil, Keep soil moist throughout the growing season Above 60ºF is preferred even in winter. Avoid cold drafts if temperature drops lower Feed in spring with slow-release pellets or weekly during growing season with liquid fertilizer.

Caring for Ixora Long

  • Water Ixora as needed to keep the soil evenly moist, but not muddy. Although the plant prefers moist soil, it may rot in excessively soggy soil. Water the shrub sparingly during the winter months.
  • Feed Ixora in early spring, using an acidic fertilizer formulated for Ixora, azalea and gardenias, which has a ratio such as 4-8-8, along with minor elements that are beneficial. Repeat in midsummer and autumn.
  • Acidic fertilizer is especially important if the foliage takes on a yellowish cast, indicating a magnesium deficiency caused by improper soil pH. Apply the fertilizer according to label specifications, then water deeply.
  • In spring, remove the mulch along with the top crust of soil. Replace the removed mulch and soil with fresh mulch.
  • Prune Ixora after blooming slows in late autumn or anytime the shrub looks untidy. Prune each shoot down to just one bud or prune the shrub as needed to create the size and shape desired.
  • Protect Ixora from aphids and scales. Aphids are tiny, green insects that congregate at joints of the leaves and stems or the undersides of the leaves.
  • Scales are hard-shelled insects that give the foliage a waxy appearance. Regular application of an insecticidal soap spray or neem oil usually helps to control both pests.
