I'm ‘Carmen’ the Bougainvillea, a fast growing evergreen vine that puts out clusters of pink papery flowers (bracts) in late winter. I love growing in southern climates, but make a nice indoor plant in the north. Put me in a spot that gets bright sun and keep me in temperatures that stay above 45˚F day and night. I like well ventilated areas, so you can put me outside when the weather is nice and I'd love it.
To water, submerge my pot up to the rim for 15 minutes, then set me aside to drain. In spring and summer my leaves will use a lot of water, so give me a drink if I start to droop. Water about once every 5-10 days, depending on how dry and sunny it is.
