Plant care

Ipomoea bolusiana likes well-drained potting mix. Regular watering during the growing season is essential but allow the base to dry out somewhat before watering again. Gradually stop watering when the main stem dries out after summer, in order to prevent rot. Start watering again when the stem begins to grow in late winter.
