The plants love the sun and grow in full bloom under direct sunlight. A light shade also influences their growth. Keeping them in a temperature below 40 might lead to the development of colored spots.  

These plants grow well on well-drained soil from moderate to slightly acidic in nature. Adequate attention should be spared to the alkaline quality of the soil, as it tends to have a negative impact on the plants. Clogged soil also results in root rot problems. 

Excessive water is never good for the plants and can cause rotting around the stems. They grow better under humid conditions. 

Above 60 ͦ F even during winter is favorable to their growth. 

An acidic fertilizer, rich in micro-nutrients with the ratio of 4-8-8 is best suited for these plants and can help fight problems. Fertilizer should be applied during midsummer in order to increase the acidic level of the soil. 

Caring for Ixora

A foliar spray is also a remedy apart from sprinkling acidic fertilizer. Trimming after the plant has flowered is also good to revitalize its growth and appearance.
