Fuchsia is a good plant for a hanging pot. In the house they need bright light but outside provide some shade. Provide an evenly moist soil and use a house plant fertilizer according to label directions. Fuchsia prefers cool temperatures, preferably below 70 degrees. Ideal temperatures are 60 to 65 degrees during the day and 50 to 55 degrees at night. Plants grown outside during the summer must be brought inside before the first fall frost. Excessively large plants may be cut back to 6 inch stubs in late fall or early winter. Fuchsia may be rested during the winter. Resting plants are pruned back and run quite dry until February, when normal watering is begun. Hot and dry weather causes flower bud drop.

Propagation is by seed or stem tip cuttings.
