Hey Guys... 3 years 9 months ago #10861

I getting ready to order some wire for the Bougainvillaea, and need to know what size wire should I buy.
The plant has a trunk size of approx. 1 inch, she's 18 inches tall, by 12 inches wide.
Thank you all in advance.

Hi there...

Well, as a rule of thumb you could use a wire that it´s 1/3 of the thickness of the branch you want to wire.

You need several thicknesses of wire not just one. I never wire my Bougie, I just use oruning for styleing.
