I live in a dry area and am having trouble with some planted kupukupu dying back. It gets water 3x week via a drip system. Does kupukupu require misting or spray onto the leaves, or should dripline supply directly to the soil be ok?

Thanks for your advise

RE: Kupukupu

It likes being wet, but it also likes good drainage. In soil alone it can get a bit too wet in areas where water hangs out in the soil for a long time. The roots need air as much as it needs moisture.
