I want to grow Frangipanis in pots. Do they need any special soil and do they need regular fertilising?



They need excellent drainage and need to be kept moist but not soggy. Mine are in a mix of Cactus soil and perlite. Fertilize every other week during the spring and summer and taper off in early fall. Use a high phosphate fertilizer such as 10-54-10. Regardless of what you use, make sure it's the middle number that's high as that will help encourage stronger blooming.

I have a few frangipanis in pots and they havent flowered at all this summer. I may not have fertilized enough so will try high phosphate next spring. Hope you have success with yours
