I mentioned about the nutrient deficiency symptoms that the common Bauhinia kockiana (common name: Red Trailing Bauhinia) climber commonly suffers from when it is grown in poor soils or soils with a limited volume.

This was what I meant. On an overhead bridge with a small soil volume, the entire trough of Bauhinia quickly exhibited the chlorosis of its leaves, although it did not seem to affect as much of the flowering. However, in the long run, such deficiency would definitely compromise the plant's overall health and growth.
