    The first, and most important, thing will be the climate. This plant will not tolerate cool temperatures. As for nutrients- These are not picky. The trick is to make sure that you never use the nutrients at high concentration. It should be properly diluted. I have used cheap granular fertilizers, and Really expensive, top of the line liquid pharmaceutical grade nutrients. They respond well either way. These are full sun plants, and do like a little sand in the soil. This is not fully necessary but will help.
