Ixora Lutea, also known as the Yellow Ixora, is an evergreen shrub belonging to the Rubiaceae family. It's admired for its vibrant yellow flowers, which bloom year-round in clusters, making it a popular ornamental plant in tropical and subtropical regions.


1. Soil Ixora Lutea thrives in well-draining, slightly acidic soil (pH 5.5-6.5). Use a mix of peat moss, compost, and perlite to create the ideal soil conditions.

2. Light This plant requires full sun to partial shade. However, it performs best under bright, indirect sunlight. Avoid exposing it to harsh afternoon sun, which can scorch the leaves.

3. Water Water Ixora Lutea regularly, keeping the soil consistently moist but not soggy. Be cautious of overwatering, as it may cause root rot. Reduce watering during cooler months.

4. Temperature and Humidity Ixora Lutea prefers warm temperatures (60-85°F or 15-30°C) and high humidity. Use a humidifier or place a tray of water nearby to maintain humidity levels.


1. Fertilization Fertilize Ixora Lutea every 4-6 weeks during the growing season with a balanced, slow-release fertilizer. Ensure that the fertilizer contains micronutrients, such as iron, to avoid chlorosis (yellowing of leaves).

2. Pruning Prune Ixora Lutea to maintain its shape and size. Remove dead or damaged branches, and trim back any leggy growth. Pruning can be done year-round, but it's best to avoid heavy pruning during the flowering season.

3. Pests and Diseases Ixora Lutea is susceptible to pests like aphids, mealybugs, and scale insects. Use insecticidal soap or neem oil to control infestations. Root rot can be avoided by proper watering and well-draining soil.


1. Repotting Repot Ixora Lutea every 2-3 years or when roots outgrow the container. Choose a well-draining pot that's 1-2 inches larger in diameter than the current one. Be sure to use a slightly acidic, well-draining soil mix.

2. Propagation Ixora Lutea can be propagated through stem cuttings or seeds. For stem cuttings, choose a healthy, non-flowering stem, and dip it in rooting hormone before planting it in moist soil.


1. Ornamental Value Ixora Lutea's bright yellow flowers make it an attractive choice for landscaping, container gardening, or as a focal point in a garden.

2. Pollinator Attraction The flowers of Ixora Lutea attract butterflies, bees, and hummingbirds, promoting pollination in the surrounding area.

3. Air Purification Ixora Lutea has been known to improve air quality by removing pollutants and releasing oxygen into the environment.

4. Traditional Medicine In some cultures, Ixora Lutea has been used for its potential medicinal properties, such as treating skin conditions and providing relief from inflammation. However, it's important to consult a healthcare professional before using any plant for medicinal purposes.
