Basket Plant | Callisia fragans 'Variegata'

My name means 'beautiful lily' in Latin but I'm actually a Tradescantia, making me a fast grower and easy to care for. I also get beautiful white blooms if you treat me nicely. 

Useful to know:

Origin

I am native to Mexico and South America.

Height/Growth

I can grow to over 1m in height!

Light

I like medium to bright light best and don't like direct sunlight.

Water

I like my soil fairly moist so please don't let me dry out too much between waterings. Water me less during winter.

Temperature

I like it on the warmer side, so no temperatures lower than 15°C please.

Feeding

Feed me every few weeks with a balanced fertiliser during the spring and summer.

Grooming

Wipe the dust off my rubbery textured leaves but otherwise I'm easy.

Care

Repot me yearly as I'm a voracious grower. You can also propagate me easily from stem cuttings.

Toxicity

Good news: I am pet friendly!. Read here about a similar pet friendly plant : Staghorn Fern.

Fact

My leaves will start turning purple the more light I get so if you want to keep me green, find me a spot with less light.
