When is the best time to prune or cut down Pride of Barbados plants? I live in New Braunfles, TX.
This is often performed in late winter/early spring and is pruned about a third back or to the ground.
How well does p. o. b. do in heat and cold? Better in pot or ground? They are on sale, and they look healthy. I can winter it until spring. Thanks.
These plants are suppose to do splendidly in your area. You should be able to plant it now in the ground and it should be fine.

I have a few Pride of Barbados seeds and going to plant them now and winter them indoors. I know you nick them and soak for approx. 24 hrs . My question is, which end to nick and how deep to sow. I read I'm supposed to nick the pointed end but I don't know how deep of a nick and depth to plant? Thanks.
For the nick, you just need to damage the seed coat. Many people like to rub seeds on a bit of sand paper just enough to scuff them up as a way to nick the seeds.
General rule of thumb is to plant seeds 3x deeper than they are big.
My Pride of Barbados has finished blooming on 1 stem. I cut the seed pods later in year, then collect them. I just want the blooms now. My question is, do I cut off the bare stem now or will it produce leaves then flowers? It's 2 yrs. old and approx. 7 feet tall and in a 20-inch pot. Thanks for taking your time.
