Callisia 'Pink Panther': Common Problems
The leaves on my plant are browning: This can be a symptom of various issues. The plant may be getting scorched. Assess the environment and make sure the plant is in a bright location without too much direct light.
Why are my variegated leaves not as bright as they used to be?
Faded variegation can indicate a lack of light. The variegated parts on the leaf don’t photosynthesize, deemed useless for plant growth. If they don’t get enough light, the plant will try to maximize growth and reduce their variegated counterparts! Try moving to a brighter location that gets a few hours of direct sun a day.
Common Pests: Mealybugs and spider mites.
Frequently Asked Questions:
How do I remove dust from my Pink Panther? Plants love being cleaned from time to time, as it helps maximize photosynthesis. Clean their leaves of dust and debris with a showerhead and remove any dead or dying foliage.
How do I stop my plant from becoming stretchy and leggy?
If the plant becomes stretched and leggy, try placing the plant in a brighter location. Plants typically become leggy when they don’t have enough sunlight. Prune back and place in the soil to maintain a bussy plant.
