Title: Bougainvillea
Post by: LBPCO on October 25, 2014, 08:21 AM
Anyone ever experience krinkly and curled leaves on Bougainvillea
Drainage is good and I use Bougain. Wondering about PH
Any comments. Thanks

These are not evergreen in the northern hemisphere.  Where are you keeping it?

This pro allen has been going on for a couple of months. I overwinter in a cool greenhouse

Any ideas on this. I am using a fast draining mix. FERT with micro nutrients in full sun.

I am thinking lack of light or warmth. Have you over wintered in the cool greenhouse before? How long have you been using bougain?

The first thought was root problems but you are saying it's draining well.

Plenty of sun all day. Flowering good  flowers seem to be curly also. I've been growing these for about 10 years now and never had this. I've been using Bougain for a couple years now.

Might be to much or to frequent fertilizing, what kind of Bougainville is it?
