Cultural Notes: Proper watering is the key to growing Superbells. Never allow the roots to get too wet, so water them only when the top of the potting mix/soil is dry. As they bloom so profusely they will benefit from regular applications of a well-balanced fertiliser throughout the flowering period. A regular addition of seaweed extract is beneficial. They are best grown in full sun. Occasionally pinch back the trailing stems to reinvigorate growth. Information and images courtesy of Aussie Winners.
