Can Bougainvillea grow inside?
So when is the best time to bring my bougainvillea in?
How to Keep Summer Alive. You can keep bougainvillea green indoors during the winter, so that it is ready for growth and bloom in the spring. The plant should be brought inside when the daytime temperature is around 42 degrees Fahrenheit.
You may also wonder if bougainvillea can survive winter. A bougainvillea can be killed by temperatures below 40 degrees Fahrenheit. Therefore, it is best to keep it indoors during winter. The winter is when the plant goes dormant. It doesn't need to be nourished by the sun, it just needs to stay alive.
How do you trim indoor bougainvillea?
To trim the tips of branches, use pruning shears just after the last node. This will encourage the formation of a new branch. The dead wood can be removed at any time, but you should save the larger pruning cuts for the early spring when it won't be damaged.
What is the lowest temperature that a bougainvillea will tolerate?
Minimum Temperature. Below 40°F the bougainvillea bracts and leaves may become wilted. Damage is more likely in temperatures below 32° Fahrenheit. The severity of damage will depend on how long the plant remains below 32 degrees Fahrenheit, and how low the temperatures fall.
