Green Thumb Guide
Performs best in enriched, well draining soils. Keep soil consistently moist but not soggy. Pinch back at any time to maintain a more bushy and compact habit. When used as a houseplant, fertilize once or twice a year with an all purpose houseplant fertilizer.ebstone-organics-surestart,elephant-ear-portora,dichondra-silver-falls,impatiens,greenall-organicpottingsoil
