The Guide to Caring For Your:
Angel Trumpet Plant (Brugmansia x candida)
The plant can grow to be 6-12 feet tall, and 2-3 feet wide. It requires a warm and humid environment, and is ideal for growing in pots.
Watering:Angel Trumpet plants should be kept consistently moist but not waterlogged. Water deeply when the top inch of soil is dry. In winter, reduce watering, but do not let the soil dry out completely.
Lighting:Angel Trumpet plants thrive in bright, indirect light. Avoid direct sun exposure, which can scorch the leaves.
Humidity:The plant prefers high humidity, so it is important to mist the leaves regularly or place the pot on a tray of moist pebbles.
Feeding:Feed the plant every 2-3 weeks with a balanced fertilizer during the growing season (spring to autumn). Reduce or stop feeding in winter.
Pests & Deficiencies:Angel Trumpet plants are susceptible to pests such as aphids, mealybugs, and scale insects. To prevent pest infestations, regularly check the undersides of leaves and use an insecticidal soap if necessary. Deficiencies can include yellowing leaves, which may indicate a lack of nitrogen.
