Ixora blooms best and grows more densely with full, direct sun for most of the day, but it also likes partial shade in the hottest climates in its USDA zone. Water the plant regularly, with a deep soaking about once a week and less during the winter, and keep the soil moist but not dripping wet.
Proper fertilization, pruning, and placement can help Ixora survive in the landscape. A good palm fertilizer such as 8-2-12-4, the fourth number on a fertilizer bag is Mg (magnesium), with chelated micro nutrients and 100 percent slow release N, K and Mg is recommended, applied four times times per year
Ixora plants like bright light, so put them somewhere in your home where they can get at least eight to 10 hours of sunlight a day. A word of warning: Keep them away from harsh direct rays in the summer, which can dry out and burn the leaves if you're not careful.
Introduction to Growing Ixora Plants: Ixora, scientifically known as Ixora coccinea is a species of flowering plant in the Rubiaceae family. It is also known as Jungle Geranium or West Indian Jasmine. Most of the species and varieties flower very freely in the summer season and rain
When transplanting your Ixora plant, it is good to do so in soil rich in organic matter. Also, ensuring a good supply of nutrients provides better drainage to the soil. To make the mixture, you can add about 1/3 of compost or well-fermented manure to the soil.
