Sun & Water
Bacopa does best in a spot that receives morning sun and some afternoon shade. It can tolerate being in full sun throughout the day if kept well-watered, although summer heat and full sun can cause the plant to droop. This plant needs regular watering, especially during the first few weeks after planting, and isn’t tolerant of dry spells or drought. Adding a 2-3-inch layer of organic mulch around the plant’s root zone can help conserve soil moisture and also helps keep its roots cool.
