- A member of the milkweed family, Telosma cordata is a creeper, a twining vine that you may want to consider adding to your garden.
- It can be a nice shade provider if you have this growing in a trellis in your garden area.
- Adding this in an entryway on an arbor doesn't just beautify the area, but it's also a nice way to enjoy the rich fragrance and the flowers produced.
- Well-drained, fertile soil.
- Filled with cactus potting soil to prevent root rot.
- Fertilize the plant every other month from spring through autumn, with an organic bloom booster type fertilizer such as 4-10-7, using two cups per plant.
- After sprinkling the fertilizer onto the ground around the base of the plant, scratch it into the soil and water thoroughly.
- Place the container in a sunny, warm spot.
- Since it is susceptible to root rot if its soil stays soggy, water it deeply only about once a week during dry periods.
