hi there! new user here.
i purchased a new bougainvillea plant about two months ago from home depot, that grows on a trellis. i potted it and used bougainvillea soil, which is quick-draining. i added a bigger trellis behind it and plan to train it to grow upon it. however, i've noticed that the plant's new shoots and leaves are green, bold and vibrant. however, the bottom part of the plant is different. the leaves are a pale green. the plant looks very misshapen. i've added bgi bougainvillea fertilizer to it monthly, but the pale green leaves still look weak.
should i trim it, or simply let it grow out?
much help would be appreciated! thanks!
