Bougainvillea Buttiana (Paper Flower)

Armed with sharp spines, these plants are woody-stemmed. The small, creamy-white flowers are insignificant in themselves but are surrounded by large, decorative, papery bracts which can be white, yellow, orange, pink, red or purple. These are produced in clusters of between 10 and 20, mainly during spring and summer. Although they are naturally climbing plants, Bougainvillea buttiana can be trained to remain bushy indoors. They are best grown in very sunny rooms or conservatories, since they require a large amount of light to encourage them to flower.

Mini-climate
Warm, sunny.

Size
These plants can reach a maximum height and spread of about 6feet. Pinch out growing tips to encourage bushy growth. Small plants are offered for sale.

Feeding
Feed with standard liquid fertilizer every two weeks in summer.

Potting
Repot every spring using soil-based potting mixture with extra peat moss mixed in. Once plants are in Sin pots topdress instead.

Special points
Water less in winter. Destroy any mealy bugs you may find.

What a great web log. I spend hours on the net reading blogs, about tons of various subjects. I have to first of all give praise to whoever created your theme and second of all to you for writing what i can only describe as an fabulous article. I honestly believe there is a skill to writing articles that only very few posses and honestly you got it. The combining of demonstrative and upper-class content is by all odds super rare with the astronomic amount of blogs on the cyberspace.
