Caring For A China Doll Plant

Ask The Plant Expert:

I have a China Doll plant which was sent to us for my Mother’s funeral. It really means a lot to me to save this plant and care for it. My question is this: is this a plant that I can plant outside in the ground? Will it survive through weather changes? Or is it better to keep inside the house? Thank You!! – Meko

Flower Shop Network Radermachia sinica 'China Doll'Plant Expert Reply: Radermachera sinica (China Doll) is typically used as a house plant only and not an outside plant.  If you lived in Hawaii, or maybe Florida, you could leave this plant outside.

As a house plant, it will need the following care:

  • A bright indirect light
  • Protection from drafts
  • Moist well-drained soil (be careful not to over-water)
  • Keep temperature above 60 degrees
  • Occasional pruning to keep shape
  • Fertilize spring through fall with a balanced-fertilizer.

Hope this information is helpful.
