BRUGMANSIA CARE

Brugmansia are easy to grow, often producing 20-50 large blooms each fall. Brugmansia will grow happily and flower in a pot or in ground. They add a beautiful accent to any outdoor space, garden or patio. In cooler zones a containerized Brugmansia can be relocated indoors for the winter months.
When you receive your new Brugmansia, there is no need to worry about planting right away. Your new plant can be stored for a while by simply placing it in a bucket with about a half inch of water and moving it to a shady location, simply keep moist. This will give you plenty of time to select the ideal location for your new Brugmansia.

CONTAINER SIZE

All Brugmansia varieties grow very well in containers, indoors or on the patio. Smaller varieties grow best indoors in 10″ to 14″ diameter pots while larger varieties need enough room for growth, generally a 14″ to a 24″ diameter, 14″ deep container will suffice. Remember the looser the roots, the taller and healthier your Brugmansia will be. When the plant becomes root bound its growth will slow, at that point it is time for a larger pot.

SOIL
