Care Tips for Tecoma Capensis:
Ensure it gets plenty of sunlight, ideally full sun to partial shade. The more sun it receives, the more prolifically it tends to bloom. While it’s relatively drought-tolerant, especially once established, regular watering is crucial, especially during its initial growth period. Water deeply but allow the soil to dry out between waterings to prevent root rot. Well-draining soil is essential. It can tolerate different soil types but prefer fertile, well-draining soil for optimal growth. Applying a balanced fertilizer in the spring can encourage healthy growth and blooming. However, be cautious not to over-fertilize, as this might lead to excessive foliage growth at the expense of flowers. Mulch around the base of the plant helps retain moisture and suppresses weeds. It also aids in maintaining a consistent soil temperature.
