Bacopa is is a bushy, full plant that will trail beautifully over the sides of a hanging pot or patio container. The dark leaves and the tiny pink or white blooms are splashy enough to have a pot to themselves, or they can be mixed with bright petunias or other annuals for a truly striking color bowl that will bloom all summer long. Bacopa can also be planted as a ground cover or border plant.
Fill a planting container with good quality potting soil. Make sure the pot has good drainage through holes in the bottom of the pot.
Purchase bacopa starts from a garden center or greenhouse. Remove the plants from the plastic container and gently loosen the soil around the roots. Use a trowel to dig a small holes in the pot and carefully plant the bacopa. You can plant more than one bacopa in a pot, but leave 2 to 3 inches between each one.
Water bacopa immediately after planting. After the plant is established, it should dry out slightly between waterings. Put the bacopa in a sunny location, but if you live in a hot climate, it will do better in partial shade.
Feed the bacopa a liquid fertilizer every other week. Read the manufacturer label for specific instructions.
