I bought a abutilon pictum thomsonii,allamanda golden butterfly,musa dwarf ladyfinger,and a kalancho pumila oh and a christmas red.

Answer: Congratulations on your new plants! They should grow happy and healthy for you if you choose large containers with lots of drainage holes in the bottoms and fill the containers with moistened potting soil. Plant each of your treasures into the soil and then water them well to help settle the soil. All of your plants will grow in morning sun and filtered afternoon shade, except the Musa, which likes full sunshine. Water when the top of the soil starts to dry out, and feed with a diluted water soluable fertilizer such as Miracle Gro, Shultz's or Peter's every 3-4 weeks. Enjoy your new plants.
