Plant Care


During summer, Water daily or when the soil starts to become slightly dry at the top. During Winter season water once in 2 days or when the soil starts to become slightly dry at the top. Keep the soil lightly moist at all times, but do not overwater as this will cause brown spots and leaf drop. Curly or dry leaves suggest, the plant is dry and needs watering. Water in the early morning or late evening when temperatures are cooler. Always check your soil before watering.


During summer season keep the plants in shaded area and during winter season plants can withstand direct/indirect light.


During summer season or when the temperature is above 45°C place the plant in shaded area. During winter season or the when the temperature is below 45°C the plants can be directly placed in direct/indirect sunlight.


Apply liquid fertilizer or slow release fertilizer once in 15 days. Always fertilizer the plants during the morning hours when the temperature is low. For best results use Folikraft ready to use Outdoor Plant Food / Flower Booster.

Plant Bio


Bougainvillea glabra or 'paper flower' gives most of its spectacular colour from its modified leaves (bracts) surrounding each small flower. This variety has variegated leaves unlike its parent; they are grey green, with cream variegation. The flowers are fantastic.

They give an astounding, long lasting display of those familiar, bright purple bracts, popular on Mediterranean balconies. They can be grown as standards and as container plants. This is a popular climber good for conservatories but will need pruning to keep its size within bounds, or can be grown outside in frost free climates.

It is seldom affected by pests and diseases, but plants in the conservatory can get infected with Whitefly.


Bougainvillea may be grown from root cuttings and branch cuttings. Cuttings can propagate plants easily. Cuttings should be planted in a shady area until they form roots.

The shoots, a few inches in length, can be replanted in sandy soil with bottom heat and moisture. Half-ripened or old woodcuttings in six to twelve inch lengths may be rooted April to June. Bougainvillea does best in dry conditions.

They need full sunlight, warm weather and well drained soil to flower well.

Latin Name Explanation

After Louis Antoine de Bougainville (1729-1811), explorer and scientist. Glabra = glabrous. Latin for smooth. Variegata - derived from the Latin "variegatus" which means "to make or have different colours."
