PLACEMENT & CULTIVATION
Fuchsia plants are a classic choice for summer containers in bright indirect light or gardens with morning sun and afternoon shade. They are elegant additions to hanging baskets or pots in sheltered positions, the curtains of dangling blossoms bringing hummingbirds like few other flowers. Overwinter rare specimens by pruning back by 1/3 and moving indoors into a basement or cool room once nighttime temperatures dip below 45F. Avoid fertilizing in winter, water sparingly, and clean up all leaf drop. They should resprout in spring when they can be repotted.

Diseases & Pests:
Regular misting mornings only will help to prevent spider mites and whiteflies. If an infestation develops, use an insecticidal soap to treat this problem. Avoid any foliar disease by providing good air circulation around your plants.
