Identify my fuchsia fulgens

Fuchsias are trees and shrubs that come from Central American, South America, and New Zealand. They have hanging and axillary flowers gathered in bouquets. The flowers have curbed colored sepals on a long tube, with the petals forming a bell shape.

Plant my fuchsia fulgens

Plant in spring in a container at least 40 cm in diameter, and fill with potting soil and loam.

Water my fuchsia fulgens

Water twice a week in the first month, and in case of drought in the summer. In pots, water at least twice a week.

Shelter my fuchsia fulgens

Put in your non-hardy fuchsias in pots, and keep the pots barely wet during the winter.

Put outside my fuchsia fulgens

In the month of May, take out your fuchsias, but find them a place that is sheltered from wind.

Prune my fuchsia fulgens

After flowering, trim the fuchsias strongly, leaving only 2-3 buds at the base of the shoots of the year, to keep them low.

Check on my fuchsia fulgens

Fuchsias are sensitive to aphids, whiteflies, bugs, weevils, botrytis cinerea fungi, and rust. All of these damage the leaves but don't danger the plant's survival unless severely infected. Most of these pests prefer hot and humid environments.

Fertilize my fuchsia fulgens

If potted, fertilize during the flowering, either with a liquid fertilizer such as liquid manure or decoction or by revitalizing the top soil by adding potting soil and lightly hoeing.
