Fuchsia plants can be bushy, vining and trailing, making them perfect to hang and droop from baskets, planters, and pots. They don’t require constant maintenance, but do plan on paying attention to them.
Fuchsias love lots of filtered light but are particularly intolerant of heat. Making sure your fuchsia baskets or planters have plenty of dappled shade and daytime temperatures well below 27 C. degrees will encourage a healthy bloom. Fuchsias also prefer cooler nighttime temperatures.
If you’re growing fuchsias indoors, a window with bright, indirect sunlight works best. However, they do like humidity and will languish if the air is too dry, whether indoors or out.
Fuchsia roots don’t like to sit in water, so make sure the soil is completely dry before providing more water. In colder zones you may need to replant in spring or move your plants indoors for the winter. Snip off any dead leaves and stems and keep your plant in a cool dark environment. It won’t look great, but in early spring with some fresh sunlight, water, and food, it should spring back to life.
