Ixora plants are hardy and give out beautiful flower clusters. Minimum maintenance is needed for growing an ixora.

Ixora blooms best and grows more densely with full, direct sun for most of the day, but it also likes partial shade in the Indian summers. It needs daily watering in the summers but you can cut it down a little in winters. Take care that the soil remains moist but not soaking wet on a daily basis.

Ixora can be pruned anytime in the year. To maintain a good shape, you can choose to prune the oldest and the longest stems from the plant. If your plant's leaves look yellowish, the plant may need a fertiliser with a high nitrogen.Annual spring pruning and fertilizing will enhance the plant€™s health. Repot the plant once in 2-3 years changing the soil.
