Plant Pavonia multiflora in loam-based potting compost and place it in filtered light with very high humidity. Water freely during the growing season and keep moist otherwise, spraying the leaves with water also helps to keep that humidity up. Prune Pavonia multiflora as necessary to keep its shape. Pavonia multiflora is generally disease-free but as other greenhouse plants watch for spider mites and whiteflies. Propagate from seed or semi-hardwood cuttings in summer or layering. It does attract bees, birds, and butterflies.
