Position of the Nerium Oleander 

A real sunbather, that is the Nerium Oleander. The Nerium Oleander prefers the sunniest location possible. Here, the plant will grow best. We advise you not to move the Nerium Oleander too often. The plant will have to get used to a new location each time and this will disrupt its development and growth. The Nerium Oleander is hardy to -5 degrees Celsius. If the temperature drops below this point, we advise you to bring the plant inside to prevent it from frost damage. Place the plant indoors in as sunny a position as possible, preferably in front of a window facing south.

Watering the Nerium Oleander 

The Nerium Oleander needs water when the soil feels dry. The soil of the Nerium Oleander should always remain slightly moist. Therefore, feel the soil of the Nerium Oleander regularly. Is this not the case? Then give it some extra water. In the summer months, too, it is important to give the Nerium Oleander some extra water. This is because the plant also uses more water then.


The Nerium Oleander in the winter


In the winter months, the Nerium Oleander doesn't need much water. With temperatures below -5 degrees Celsius, we advise you to bring the Nerium Oleander inside. Place the plant indoors in a place with a lot of direct sunlight.


Pruning of the Nerium Oleander


The Nerium Oleander can be pruned to retain its beautiful shape. Old leaves will turn brown and slowly die off by themselves. It is best to prune in the spring. In this period, the Oleander recovers the fastest. Prune the branches that grow inwards. This way, you make sure that all the branches of the Nerium Oleander receive the same amount of sunlight and that the plant can continue to grow in a round shape.


Re-potting of the Nerium Oleander 

When repotting your Nerium Oleander, choose a planter that is at least 20% larger than the root ball. This way, the Nerium Oleander can continue to develop and its roots will have enough room to grow further and stronger.  The Nerium Oleander should preferably be repotted in the spring. Then any damaged roots can recover well in the sunny period.
