  1. Choose a good location

    Plant your dwarf Meixcan petunia in a good location that has plenty of sunlight. This plant flowers based on the amount of light it gets. Use fertile, well-drained soil. If your soil doesn't drain well, add sand to it.

  2. Give the plant water

    After first planting a petunia, be sure to give it plenty of water. Continue to water it regularly until it becomes established. Once the plant matures, water it only when the soil is dry. The Mexican petunia is a drought-resistant plant that survives with very little water. If it is an indoor plant, water it more often during hot weather and less often during the winter.

  3. Trim the plant

    Trim the plant regularly in order to control its shape. It grows and spreads quickly, so control it by pruning it and pulling up any plants that are growing outside of its range. In order to encourage the plant to grow more flowers, trim the stems down. Cut away any damaged or diseased parts of the plant.
