    There are alot of things that could do this. Try giving it some balanced fertilizer (potash is mostly for potassium) and then treat the plant with neem oil. Neem oil will kill any fungus or pests that may be affecting the plant.

    Typically, a bougainvillea tree is pruned in a specific way to get it into a tree shape.The best time to prune bougainvillea is in late winter or early spring after it flowers, or at the start of the rainy season. If you wait until late summer or early fall, your plant may produce fewer flowers during the following winter.

    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.

The perfect place is where is the Plant protected from the rain and at the same time, it gets a lot of sun light. https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/vines/bougainvillea/
