Ixora is a shrubby evergreen with glossy-green, opposite leaves.Never allow ixora to become root-bound in a pot smaller than the ultimate size you want it in, and pot large plants firmly in coarse, turfy material.
Established plants usually produce three flower crops a year. But, with Ixora flowers being so long-lasting, and such a short resting period, plants bloom almost constantly, and they start flowering when small.
|Bright light, but avoid direct sunlight in summer.||The most important thing to remember when planting Ixora is that it must be planted in acidic soil because alkaline soil can result in yellow foliage. These acid-loving plants thrive in rich, moist, peat based soil.||Ixora likes to be watered, but you shouldn't do it excessively. Keep soil continuously moist, but reduce watering in the winter. Very high humidity is preferred.||Above 15 C is preferred even in winter. Avoid cold drafts if temperature drops lower||Feed in spring with slow-release pellets or weekly during growing season with liquid fertilizer.|
