What care does my fuchsia plant need?

Fuchsias are spectacular plants for hanging baskets. To provide lots of flowering stems, pinch the tips of your plant back now, and pinch them back regularly throughout the growing season. It’s difficult to pinch plants back, but you’ll be rewarded with bushy growth and tons of flowers—so pinch, pinch, pinch!

Fuchsias need lots of water so plan on checking your plant daily, watering as needed. Once every week or two, take the plant down and immerse the pot in a large container of water. Leave it there until bubbles stop coming to the surface. This will throughly wet the rootmass and drive out any little air pockets around the roots.
