Planting Conditions

Digiplexis Falcon Fire thrives in full sun to partial shade. Plant it in well-drained soil, enriched with organic matter to improve fertility and drainage. It can tolerate a range of soil types but prefers a slightly acidic to neutral pH. Ensure proper spacing to allow good air circulation and prevent overcrowding. Plant in Spring or Autumn when the soil is workable and temperatures are mild. Water deeply after planting and regularly afterwards to keep the soil evenly moist. Apply a layer of mulch to conserve moisture and suppress weed growth.

Watering & Feeding

Water Digiplexis Falcon Fire regularly, especially during dry spells, to keep the soil evenly moist. Avoid over-watering, as this can lead to root rot. Applying a layer of organic mulch around the plants helps retain moisture and regulate soil temperature. Feed every 4-6 weeks during the growing season with a balanced fertiliser to support healthy growth and abundant flowering. Avoid excessive nitrogen fertilisers, as they can promote excessive foliage growth at the expense of flower production. Monitor the plant's water needs and adjust accordingly based on weather conditions.

General Care

Digiplexis Falcon Fire is generally low-maintenance. Remove faded flowers regularly to encourage continuous blooming and prevent the plant from diverting energy to seed production. Prune any yellowing or damaged foliage to maintain a neat appearance. Support the tall flower spikes with stakes or a trellis to prevent them from toppling over in windy conditions. Monitor for pests or diseases and take appropriate action if necessary. In colder regions, apply a layer of mulch around the base of the plant in late Autumn to provide insulation during Winter. With proper care, Digiplexis Falcon Fire will continue to dazzle with abundance.
