Before planting the swimsuit plant, it’s important to prepare the soil properly. This plant thrives in shaded areas as direct sunlight can cause it to fade and shrink quickly. Loose, moist, and well-drained soil is best for this plant, except for dry and sandy soils. To prepare the soil, add 5-6 kilograms of peat with humus per square meter and a flower mixture like “Saintpaulia” or “Azalea” and one tablespoon of nitrophosphate.

Propagation of this plant is typically done by dividing the bush as germination from seeds is uneven and slow. Cuttings from the swimsuit bush or ready-made seedlings can also be used. When digging out the plant, be cautious not to damage the roots as they are delicate and can dry out easily. Midsummer is the best time for transplanting, with sharp knives used to divide the bushes into smaller divisions, each having around 3-4 buds.

Young swimsuit plants must be watered regularly but not excessively, especially in dry weather. They do not require shelter during winter. Feeding the plant with small doses of nitrophoska, Agricola for flowering plants, and urea in 10 liters of water is necessary for proper care. This feeding should be carried out in early May and repeated before the plant blooms.

To grow swimsuit plants from seeds, it’s best to plant them in early January and keep them at a temperature of 2 to 4 degrees for three months. Afterward, transfer the boxes to a room with room temperature. When the first leaf appears on the seedlings, carry out a pick or transplant. In August, the plant can be planted in a permanent location, with a distance of 30-40 cm between plants. The swimsuit plant will begin to bloom the following year with proper care.
