Closely related to philodendrons, money plants as they are popularly known as in India are extremely hardy and almost impossible to fail at. Because of that, and the fact that it stays green even when kept in the dark, they have earned the name of "Devil's Vine/Ivy". With soft, heart-shaped leaves and graceful, unfurling stems, they are very attractive when grown in a lush bush or even as elegant, isolated tendrils in a solitary glass vase. They are fast growers and with the help of their aerial and subterranean roots they can trail, climb or creep. So they could be grown on a moss stick/trellis, in hanging planters, or against a surface. Money plants come in various types. This cultivar is RARE with green and white variegations in which the whites are centered on the leaf and the greens tend to appear as borders, and it is called "Manjula".

GROWING: Re-pot in a larger container or grow in-ground to increase root and foliage growth. Grow separately as this plant is quite demanding of soil/water resources. Trim off old, drying leaves from time to time and add this as shredded foliage around your plant to increase humus and soil health.
LIGHT: If growing indoors, place in a bright spot with exposure to indirect sunlight/ambient light for at least six hours daily. If growing outdoors, place in semi-shade as exposure to strong direct sunlight will burn the leaves of this plant.
WATERING: Alternate days in summer and twice a week rest of the year. Allow soil to dry out completely between watering events. Never let its roots sit in stagnant water. If growing indoors, ensure that drip trays are emptied regularly.
FERTILIZING: Our plants are sold in organically enriched, NPK+MagSulf strong, potting mixes that would need no additional soil amendments for at least one year. If re-potting/migrating to a larger container, we recommend the use of Mandy's Farm Foliage Plant Potting Mix or one similar to it.
