Bougainvillea Pink Pixie are fairly salt-tolerant, fast-growing, and need full sun. They make excellent container plants, especially the Sunvillea varieties. When planting them, amend the soil with composted manure and topsoil or organic peat moss. This is truly drought tolerant and blooms best when a bit on the dry side. If the soil is completely dry, water the plants deeply to saturate at the root zone and then allow the soil to dry before watering again. Fertilize dwarf every other week between the spring and fall with a diluted mix of all-purpose, water-soluble fertilizer. Cut back to fertilizing once every 4-6 weeks in the winter. Bougainvillea Pink Pixie responds well to pruning and should be trimmed in the late summer or early spring to restrain its size. Prune just above a leaf. Pruning does decrease the number of blooms initially, but the plant rebounds rapidly. To make the plant bushier and fuller, pinch off the tender new tips after each flush of blooms, about every 4-6 weeks.
