Plantation

  1. Site selection: Choose a location with well-draining soil and enough space for the plant to grow.
  2. Time to Plant: Plant in spring or early summer to give the plant the best chance of establishing itself.
  3. Soil preparation: Amend the soil with organic matter to improve drainage and fertility.
  4. Planting: Dig a hole twice the width of the root ball, and place the plant so the top of the root ball is level with the soil surface. Fill in the hole and gently firm the soil around the base of the plant.

Growing

  • Watering: Water regularly, ensuring the soil stays consistently moist but not waterlogged.
  • Fertilizing: Apply a balanced, slow-release fertilizer in spring and summer to support growth.
  • Pruning: Remove dead or damaged leaves and trim the lower leaves as the plant grows to maintain its shape.
  • Pest Control: Monitor for pests such as mealybugs or scale insects, and treat with insecticidal soap or neem oil as needed.

Care

  • Cold Protection: Protect the plant from frost and freezing temperatures by wrapping it in frost cloth or moving it indoors if potted.
  • Container Growing: If grown in a container, use a well-draining potting mix and a pot with drainage holes. Move the plant indoors during winter in cooler climates.
  • Maintenance: Keep the area around the plant free of weeds and debris to reduce the risk of pests and diseases.
