Bougainvillea Plants


Anonymous added on June 19, 2011 | Answered

I recently bought a bougainvillea plant in a hanging pot. It has been very hot and dry here in Louisiana–quite awhile with no rain. I have it outside in a shaded area, but the leaves and blooms are drying up. How much should I water this plant? Should I put it in a larger pot? Please advise.

Potted plants, especially those in hanging baskets, should be watered daily. If temps are over 80 F., then they may even need to be watered twice a day.
