Callisia

£6.00

This one is made of little fairy dreams. If you like the tradescantia vibe and you’ve enjoyed the Callisia Jungle Jewels then you’re going to LOVE this. The sweet green petals have a beautiful purple underside. This lady will trail, or you could keep her neat with a little pruning. Callisia is derived from the Greek word καλλον which means beauty. I’ve also heard this little thing being referred to as a turtle vine. It’s pretty easy to look after too.

 

Availability: 11 in stock

ight : She can handle most light conditions but bright light will keep her pink. 

Water: Allow the top couple of centimetres dry out before you water her. She’s pretty drought tolerant and won’t get too mad if you accidentally forget to water her. 

Humidity: You won’t need to mist her unless she’s looking particularly dry.

Temperature: Your normal household temperature will keep her happy. 

Food:  You can feed her in the growing season. 

Toxicity:  I’ve seen a mix of info regarding this plant ranging from it being edible and a good plant to give to tortoises and birds to DO NOT LET YOUR DOG WITHIN ONE FOOT OF THIS PLANT. So I’m going to advise you to exercise some caution and perhaps don’t feed it to your pet as a snack.
