Description

Bougainvillea Torch Glow plant is defined by a unique torch-like floral arrangement formed along the substantially upright branching of the shrub that is compact in its branching and has dense foliage with the flowers being borne in dense oppositely branched cymes, which are axillary and are borne in the axils of almost all leaves from near the apex of the branch to from ten to forty centimeters down the branch, giving the appearance of a cylindrical spike, and wherein the roots are much thicker and more succulent than typical for bougainvillea.

The bracts subtending the flowers are Peony Purple  They vary from two to two and one-half centimeters in length and from one and one-half to one and three-quarters centimeters in width

Environment

Bougainvillea are easy to grow and flower if grown under maximum light and stressed with dryness. Bring the soil to a state of visual dryness between watering. The best flowering occurs when the plants are brought to a slight wilt between watering. When watering, thoroughly saturate the soil until a little water runs out of the bottom of the pot. Growing in a clay pot will help maintain a healthy root system.

Grow in Fertile, well drained soil in full light. Bring the soil to a state of visual dryness between watering. The best flowering occurs when the plants are brought to a slight wilt between waterings. When watering, thoroughly saturate the soil until a little water runs out of the bottom of the pot. Growing in a clay pot will help maintain a healthy root system.

Fertilize with a balanced, soluble fertilizer every two weeks at ½ tsp of fertilizer per gallon of water. Reduce the frequency during the winter months, especially under cool temperatures.
