The Flowering of the Champa Plant in Container/ Flowering of Frangipani Plant in Container


First buds on the Champa plant
 Finally the champa plant, one of my favourites and since childhood, has given beautiful fragrant flowers. The majestic stem has a bunch of buds which open side by side and some flowers have opened soon where as some are still in bud form. Growing the champa plant in container was challenge and many people were against trying this and still soem believed that the plant will not flower.
But this has shwn that love,care and patience gives us great results. I have been blessed with this heavy laden champa stem which has so many flowers.

The fragrance is just out of this world and no wonder this flower is world famous for its heavenly fragrance. the frangipani flowers have been used since ages in perfumes and air fresheners. And the dropped flowers were used in our living room. I did put the yellow champa flowers in water and the whole room would become fragrant when windows were closed during night. The flowers turn brown in water and though they last for many days the fragrance does linger in the corners still, even after removing the flowers from the room.
Champa Plant Care and Flowering tips- The champa plant needs a bigger container and it would be better if you choose the right container in the beginning as this will avoid later transplanting soon as the plant needs to grow big and also requires side space to bloom.
The soil selection was most important. I selected soil was hardy and along with very few rocks and pebbles the majority portion was good quality soil. The frangipani plant will root fast and will need strength to hold the big champa frangipani plant in the pot. Container gardening is a challenge and the pot also must be of cement or hard metal to hold the big frangipani plant. The champa plant can tolerate direct sunlight and grows well when watered daily.
Fertilizing was another tricky part as I do not want the plant to give weak blooms. The small plant has now given healthy and big flowers and that too in original size and of course the original heavenly fragrance!
