Useful to know:
I am native to Mexico and Central America.
I am fast growing and can grow to half a meter long.
I thrive in bright to medium light conditions. To maintain the most striking colours, give me bright, diffused light.
Once my soil has begun to dry out, give me a good watering. In the Winter, do so less frequently. Don't let me sit in wet soil for long periods as this will cause root rot.
I am happy in normal room temperatures from 10-24°C.
During the growing season feed me every few weeks with a diluted solution.
An important part of growing me is pinching back my long, vining tendrils. Good grooming will encourage me to branch and increase fullness.
I enjoy humidity and being misted on occasion.
I am mildly toxic to pets so best keep me away from pets and children.
I have a slightly shorter lifespan than other plants, but you should be good for about a year. Click here to buy Wandering Jew plant.
