God beat up by last winter and early spring rains, moth worms, grasshoppers, and snails. It was barely hanging on until spring when it began to show life again. This one is a little more than 2 years old and made many clones. I’m nursing her back gradually 😊
@leafylife only afternoon sun. Our temperatures were in the triple digits until 5 days ago and was cooking it so I put it in the shade. If you look back on my older picture. All leaves were a vibrant purple
Holy Moses lol where are you? I've been scrambling for 2 weeks to get all mine indoors because we're getting into the high 40s at night. Saw your previous pics, that's what mine is like big bold and beautiful 😍
Got this at my local grocery store today. So bright already at 4 inches tall. #persian-shield #foliagefriday #bestofmarch #beautiful #purple I’ll repot it tomorrow with some coffee grounds to make that purple pop.
I truly think Persian Shield is one of the most beautiful foliage there is, not many posts today, I suspect everyone is watching the news. Trump sure knows how to make our country look bad #treasuredplants one of my favorites #tropical
Light doses of miracle grow @philstalder I always less than recommended measure to feed them. Let the lava rocks I put in the bottom of every pot do there think. Volcanic materials and soil is the best on the planet. I noticed right away, when I started using lava rock the plants were doing so much better. I either pot it in the bottom of pots or on top of the soil
@KeriSamuel they have to kept in a very humid environment is the trick. My garden house is just that. It only had one vent and the watering of my food plants in the ground every morning or event provide the needed humidity.
