About A popular flowering shrub in the gardens of warm & humid region. Leaves opposite, oblong-elliptical, thickly coriaceous. Flowers deep scarlet (Coccinea in Latin means scarlet-coloured).
Category Flowering – Perennial. Can be grown as potted a plant.

Origin Native to Southern India, Bangladesh, and Sri Lanka.
Soil For outdoor planting – well drained, sandy loam soil with pH value 5 – 6 is most suitable. Ixora can be grown in a large container in outdoor garden also.

When grown as potted houseplant, use well drained, aerated, loamy, organic matter enriched potting medium GrowpoT–H. Sterilised to reduce the risk of fungal infection & root rot. pH value 5 – 6.

Pruning Pruning of Ixora is essential after bloom, as flowers appear in the new shoots. Pruning also helps to maintain the height & shape of the plant.
Light For outdoor planting in hot bright sunlight – grow well in partial or light shade conditions.

When grown as potted houseplant, place the plant under direct sunlight for few hours in morning. Best to place the plant near an east or south-east facing window, at balcony where the plant can get morning sun.

NOTE: If the plant does not get enough sunlight, there will be a distinct lack of flowers, though equally too much sun can cause the flowers to wilt and drop. Having a good balance by allowing both some direct sunlight and partial shade. So a little trial may be required.

Irrigation Ixora like to have continuously moist medium but not water logged condition. So watering should be regular but in a regulated manner.

For tap water, preserve the water 24 hrs to minimise the presence of salts, chlorine, fluoride etc.
