As I am myself a fan of bougainvilleas - tho I only have 6 different pots of them
Purple, yellow, white (variegated leaves), white (plain green leaves), red torch and orangy with (variegated leaves)
Keep the progress report coming in!!!
thank you for your encouragement.
I have a question and wonder if you or anyone can help to answer:
Different ferts cause flowers to be different-looking?
Coz I used blue pellets and there are many bracts and they look small, a bit round-edged and when I used Andgro ougainvillea liquid fert, the bracts are larger, fewer, sharper-edged.
The other case study I have is the Sakura - I thought it was Apple Blossom, but having studied the pictures on NParks Web, I think it's Sakura. However, the bract colour is totally differnt from when I bought them. It was gently pink and white when I bought them. Of course they didn't flower for ages until I used the Andgro Bourgainvillea a few weeks ago, and then now the bracts are coming fast and furious, but the colour's strange. See picture above and below - there are streaks of pink/purple from the veins in some and sort of 'spread' to the rest of the bract - some more gently than others. So is this the wrong fert to use?
