Diamantina Dipladenia® for end-users > How to take care of Dipladenia
It is important to keep in minds the two following main requirements:
- Sun exposure
For best blooming results, please place the Dipladenia in sunny zones.
- Sensitivity to compacted soil
Excess in water can result in compacting the soil that causes lack of air around the rooting system. Water regularly but never in excess.
Add fertilizer once a month. All purpose fertilizers to enhance blooming are good (12-8-24).
No need to trim the Dipladenia except in following situations:
- Bushy plant types: eliminate the long stretched branches that can appear under low light conditions,
- Climbing plant types: use a support to lead the plant, making ‘S’ shapes with the stems. This technique will stimulate the growth of new flower buds.
