  1. Light: Smaller plants tend to thrive in partial shade, but as they grow they can tolerate more light. They are margin plants by nature, meaning they grow on the edge of forests and can withstand varied light levels.​ They can tolerate less light in the winter months, so don’t place them too close to a window. If the plant is getting leggy, however, it’s probably not getting enough light.
  2. Soil: When growing the plant outdoors, Iresine prefers organically rich, well-draining soil. For indoor growth, though, use a loamy, soil-based potting mixture.
  3. Water: Regular moisture is essential, especially during the growing season. They aren’t water plants, so don’t waterlog them, but plants without adequate moisture will begin to develop brown leaf margins and dropping leaves. During the winter months, you can cut back on watering, but aim to keep the soil moist.
  4. Temperature & Humidity:

    These are “warm house” plants and cannot tolerate lower temperatures or cold, dry air. The plant requires a temperature of at least 50 to 60 degrees Fahrenheit or 10 to 15 degrees Celsius. Indoors, they are best grown in window boxes or bathrooms, which often have warmth and humidity. If you have a glasshouse, they will thrive there. Due to their low tolerance for cold, dry air, they will need to be frequently misted and provided with adequate heat during the winter.

  5. Fertilizer: Feed with a high-nitrogen liquid fertilizer every two to three weeks throughout the growing season.
  6. Potting & Repotting: Iresine should be repotted annually until it reaches its mature size, then it can be repotted every other year or propagated to create new stock and discarded. In the tropical landscape, it is often used as bedding plants, so it’s a nice effect to grow a small clump of them in a container or to grow them in a mixed container with other tropical plants.
  7. Pruning: Iresine plants will put out small, pale green-white flowers, but they’re not showy. Therefore, most gardeners choose to pinch off the buds, so that the plant can divert its energy into growing its beautiful foliage.
