For a balanced development of the The Strongylodon macrobotrys , let's choose a partially shaded place, where it can enjoy direct sunlight only during the coolest hours of the day. To allow these plants to develop as well as possible, it is best to locate them near a wall, a gate or an appropriate grate.The Strongylodon macrobotrys is grown at home or in a warmed green house; during the Spring it can be moved outside, but only if the mimimum temperatures are clearly mild.
Care Strongylodon macrobotrys

Irrigation Strongylodon macrobotrys
These plants favour quite regular watering, usually 1-2 buckets of water ; we advise in any case to irrigate every 2-3 weeks , when the soil is dry. We should remember that the climber shrubs are very vigorous, and sometimes need very abundant watering.
Adversity Strongylodon macrobotrys
The spring weather, with a high temperature swing between the day and night hours, and pretty frequent rains, can favour the development of fungus diseases, which should be treated pre-emptively with a systemic fungicide, to use before the gems grow excessively; at the end of the winter we also suggest a wide range insecticide to prevent the attack of aphids and cochineals. We should always remember to do these treatments when there aren't flowerings in the garden.
Substrate Strongylodon macrobotrys
They love not too drained, slightly heavy soils which withhold dampness a bit.
