The Brugmansia is a
tropical plant, it must be brought inside before the first frosts,
because it will probably not survive to them.
The Brugmansia is a plant that needs a lot of water and fertilizer.
To make it grow, you can use some 20-20-20 until it
forms a “Y”. The flowers will then begin to grow, and you can then use
some 15-30-15, to increase flowering.
You can use
fertilizer each time you water the plant, and you can even the triple
the quantity recommanded by the manufacturer. Water and fertilizer can
then be given each day.
The Brugmansia can
be kept in a pot. If you put it in a big pot, you plant will grow
bigger and the chances that its roots choke it will be less probable. We
recommend you to use a light soil-based compost (Promix or Agromix),
because they are less heavy, and therefore it will be easier to move
your pot. These soil-based composts dry faster, therefore the roots
breath better. If you keep your Brugmansia in a pot, it will need more
water, and once the automn comes, you will have to bring the pot inside
for hibernation. For those who keep their Brugmansia in a pot, once
again to prevent it from getting it choked by its roots, we recommend
that you take the plant out of its pot to cut the roots. You should do
that once every 2 years.
It can also be
planted into the soil, you will then have to take it in before the
temperatures are below 0° Celsius.
