Plantation and Growing

  1. Planting location: Choose a location with full sun to partial shade, providing at least 6 hours of sunlight daily.
  2. Soil preparation: Prepare the planting site by loosening the soil to a depth of 12-15 inches (30-38 cm). Mix in organic matter or compost to improve soil drainage and fertility.
  3. Planting: Dig a hole twice the width and the same depth as the root ball. Place the plant in the hole, making sure the top of the root ball is level with the surrounding soil. Backfill the hole with soil, and gently firm it down.
  4. Watering: Water the plant thoroughly after planting. Keep the soil consistently moist, but not waterlogged, during the first year. Once established, Tecoma capensis is moderately drought-tolerant.

Care and Maintenance

  1. Pruning: Prune Tecoma capensis in late winter or early spring before new growth begins. Remove any dead, damaged, or crowded branches, and shape the shrub as desired.
  2. Fertilization: Apply a balanced, slow-release fertilizer in early spring to promote healthy growth and flowering. Follow the package instructions for the correct application rate.
  3. Pest and disease control: Inspect the plant regularly for pests such as aphids, whiteflies, or spider mites. Use insecticidal soap or neem oil as needed. Tecoma capensis is generally resistant to most diseases but watch for signs of fungal infections, such as leaf spots or powdery mildew, and treat with a fungicide if necessary.
