    Ericaceous compost is the right stuff for crinodendron, they want an acid soil.

    + plenty of rainwater ; dappled shade and shelter from drying cold winds is also a good idea .

    Or full sun, mine are out in the open, sun all day and very windy, I don’t think they’re fussy.  Both grown from seed originally.

    Wherever you plant it bear in mind they grow huge, so give it plenty of room.
