Abutilon hybrids (Flowering maple or Parlour Maple)

Light and position

Give an abutilon a position where it is going to receive as much direct sunlight as possible. Large plants can become top heavy . so make sure their containers are sturdy enough to prevent them from toppling over

 

Temperature range

A mininmum of 10C(50F) will suit these plants perfectly , but they can be kept at a lower temperature during the winter in preffered . those plants kept cool during the winter will need very little water and they might lose their leaves for the dormancy period

 

Watering

The abultilon is easy to water by any method and likes a lot of water in the growing period. In the rest period , water more moderately , allowing the top layer of soil to dry out between waterings

Feeding

Give the plants a liquid feed once every two weeks through spring and summer

 

Soil

Abutilons do well in a soil-based mixture repot annually until the final pot size is reached , then top-dress with fresh mixture annually.
