Planting and care

Outdoors, a flowering maple requires moderate water in the summer so that the soil is lightly but consistently moist. The shrub thrives with a yearly feeding using a liquid fertilizer. If the shrub lacks nourishment, the lower leaves may drop. Indoors, you can water these plants until the soil feels slightly moist and allow soil to dry out slightly between waterings.
Make sure to water at the roots and not overhead to avoid disease. Indoor plants need a bimonthly feeding with a water-soluble 20-20-20 fertilizer.
