Scientific Name: Pseuderanthemum Atropurpureum

Pseuderanthemum are a species of hardy shrubs that grow well in full sun and semi-shade. Because of their hardiness, quick growth and lush foliage, they make excellent hedge or border plants. They can also be grown in containers in sunny balconies. In season they flower abundantly. A very low maintenance plant. This species has lime green deeply veined foliage and appears almost neon from a distance. It is called "Atropurpureum".
*Highly rated as an airpurifier when placed indoors.
**Sold in 0.7 liter/4" standing plastic containers
***All our plants are grown in organically enriched living soil without the use of any chemical fertilizers, fungicides or pesticides.
GROWING: Re-pot in a larger container to increase root and foliage growth. Grow in a container/hanging basket or bounded outdoor space as this plant is quite demanding of soil/water resources and will grow rapidly. 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 for at least six hours daily. If growing outdoors, place in full sun or semi-shade. Avoid direct sunlight which will burn its leaves.
WATERING: Daily in summer and thrice 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.
