Fuchsia

Fuchsia

The Fuchsia flower is a beautiful, exotic flower with striking two-tone colours. The fuchsia flower is quite unusual with regard to its shape and the fact that they are really delicate. These beautiful flowers are great just about anywhere in your garden. Fuchsia’s do very well in hanging baskets on the patio.
 

Care instructions

Put in a little and get back a lot!

Care Instructions:
 
Watering fuchsias is fairly easy and straight-forward. They like to be kept evenly moist, but not wet.
 
Temperature: Keep it cool at night 10-13°C and warmer 16-21°C during the day.
 
Shed some (indirect) light. Fuchsias make easy indoor plants, if you can provide the suitable light they need to grow. Place your fuchsia plant near a window, where it'll get filtered sunlight. Moving your plant outdoors for the summer will really help it to thrive. Just keep it in a shady spot and be sure to bring it back inside when the temperature drops. Fuchsias don't tol-erate frost.
 
Give it a rest. Fuchsias go dormant in winter. Keep your plant in a cool place (with a minimum of 7°C). Cut back on watering during this time, allowing the soil to dry out between watering's.
