Watering: Duranta plants need a moderate amount of water. Plants growing outdoors need the equivalent of about an inch of rain per week.
Fertilizer: Duranta plants are not heavy feeders and can get by without any supplemental fertilizer in good soils.
Temperature: Maintain a temperature of about 20-25 degrees C
Pruning: duranta plants form flowers on new growth, you can cut the plant back severely in winter in preparation for the burst of growth that occurs in spring.
