Bacopa likes consistent moisture in a sunny location with protection from hot afternoon sun. If you have sandy soil, amend it with sphagnum peat moss, coir or compost. Many people use Bacopa as the "spiller" in containers. As long as the planter doesn't dry out, this works well. As with most annual flowers, using a long-acting flower fertilizer helps it bloom non-stop. Avoid fertilizers with high nitrogen values as these encourage leafy growth at the expense of flowering.
