A tropical plant with shimmering flowers, this marvellous little shrub needs special care if it is to flourish. Like most tropical plants, it needs a great deal of humidity, warmth and light. You must spray the foliage regularly and keep the soil constantly moist; otherwise the buds will fall off. Use tepid water for watering and spraying. This hungry plant needs diluted fertilizers regularly. Cut back severely in the spring to obtain a bushier and stronger plant. You may repot in the spring as well. Your cuttings may be placed in a glass of water to root.
Your plant should always be well drained.
The perfect spot for it is one with a bit of direct sun and, above all, lots of light.
