 Tips for growing the Tecoma stans plant

This is an extremely easy plant to maintain and we must even control its spread since it has a high invasive potential. Below are your basic cultivation requirements:

Lightning :

It should always be grown in full sun throughout the day. Young plants appreciate some light shade during the warmest hours of summer days. It is not a plant for the interior of the home; It is mainly grown to decorate garden exteriors.


It prefers to develop in climates where temperatures between 16ºC-28ºC predominate. Do not expose to temperatures below 8ºC and much less to frost. Contact with frost (snow) causes fatal damage to this species.


It grows best in sandy substrates with 60% mineral material, although it tolerates a wide variety of substrates. It requires a calcareous substrate, very aerated and that allows rapid drainage of water.

Irrigation frequency:

Water young specimens every 3 days if temperatures exceed 18ºC. Adult specimens can be watered every 15-20 days, although they survive perfectly with water from occasional rainfall.

Plagues and diseases:

It is a plant extremely resistant to attack by common garden pests. Mealybugs and aphids appear during the flowering season, attacking the inflorescences. Very healthy plants will rarely suffer serious infestations from these pests.


After flowering, it is necessary to perform intensive pruning of all branches to encourage future vigorous growth that will be accompanied by more flowers.
