Hey y'all!
Bought this plant at a local market, but the name totally passed my head. The seller told me to water it for a week & then twice a week after that & it should be good, but I wanna know more about it! Please help?? (:

bougainvillea, I always wanted one.

RE: Unknown plant

Instructions like that are ridiculous. How does the person who sold you this plant know how fast it will dry in the future? If that's not often enough, your plant will bake to death. If that's too often, the roots can rot. Tons of genuine info out there about Bougainvillea, for in the ground if hardy where you are, or in a pot. I would encourage you to seek 2nd opinions from sources with better advice!

A stunning plant, good luck!
