The Q&A Archives: Red Brazilian Cape Plant

Question: My 5 foot Megaskepasma Erythrochiamys bloomed once 2 yrs ago only 2 flowers. I added super phos, tried Super Bloom, bone meal. Plant is healthy and growing. In a large pot in M.Grow potting soil; dappled sun most of the day, couple hours full afternoon sun. Trimmed it slightly this year, putting out new leaves right now on the trimmed branches. Any ideas?

Answer: Your Brazilian Red Cloak plant needs moist soil to perform best and will grow in full sun to light shade. Dappled sunshine might not be quite enough light. Try moving the pot so it gets a few more hours of direct sunshine. I think you'll see a difference in its performance.

Best wishes with your plant!
