Turtle Vine (Creeping Inch Plant)

(Listing for Plant Only, Shop Pots and Planters)

Small | Light| Cute

Callisia Repens is an adorable and easy plant that loves to cover the ground you give it, making it a beautiful addition to any collection that will surround other plants near it.

The leaves stay small, and the nodes of the stems are about an inch apart (which is why it's also called creeping inch plant). The undersides of the leaves will turn slightly more purple in colder climates. 

Because this is a ground cover plant, it loves to grow to cover all the ground it can and will result in a very lush look wherever you place it.

Lighting: Bright indirect or bright direct.

Water: Keep evenly moist, but don't allow for standing water. In winter, cut back a little on watering and make sure the top of the soil is dry before watering.

Soil/Potting: Plant in a well draining soil in a container with a drainage hole and made of slightly porous material like ceramic or sealed concrete. Repot annually or when plant exhibits discoloration without the presence of any mis-watering habits.

Fertilize: Monthly with bacterial inoculant recommended for steady growth and to promote richer coloration in the foliage.

Temperature: Room temp (55-85 degrees is ideal), protect from harsh fluctuations in temperature particularly in the winter

Toxicity: Unsafe for ingestion by humans and pets.
