However, it thrives best with regular watering, especially during the hot and dry seasons. It enjoys high humidity. Prefers well-drained and fertile loamy soils. Prune regularly to maintain preferred height and size, to encourage new growth and more blooms, as well as to keep bush dense and compact.

However, do watch out for caterpillars that feed on its leaves.
