how to make a vietnam rose bloom

Updated on August 26, 2009

here are a few tips that I got from my mom,

  • vietnam rose loves sunlight - place your plant in a place where direct sunlight reaches it
  • vietnam rose hates too much water-  don't over water your plant
  • small amount of soil will do - This one I learned from experience. I haven't got enough soil so I temporarily placed the excess plants on my laundry room, surprisingly they're still alive after a week!

      im here in the philippines and i have been growing viet rose beside my ornamental plant. Some of it I accidentally place near our launrdray area outside our home where it usually gets too much sunlight and laundry water, and frequent foot stomping. And still there green as ever. My question is, can I use it as a grass lawn instead of using bermuda grass, which I planning to use.

      mmm. nice idea drifterify, I have'nt thought of that. You can try it on a small part of your garden, if it had survived your laundry, it should work. But remember, viet rose is like an under water sea weed, it has long stems and soft leaves, so you would have to trim it every so often, and I think it will not produce much flower if that's the case. Well, its just an idea, nothing teaches us more than experiencing it, so you can still try it and let me know what happens, if you would mind of course. Thanks also for asking for my advice

      Hi! How often do you water Vietnam Rose? The seller that I bought from told me that it should only be once a week. I can't seem to find any reliable information from the web so I hope someone can help me here. Thanks! :)
