I love these. I was surprised to find one in an outdoor garden centre. Trying to get more purple in mine without burning the leaves. Using grow lights. 💜💜

They are so awesome, from purple to silver. And they grow so fast. One of my favorite foliage. Now I have to post mine, it’s been a while. 😆

I took cuttings and tried to overwinter this. It really wasn’t my most successful project. Does anyone have any tips. I love this plant!

comment
ShelleySnyder

@janetandjim hi Janet 🙋 has your cutting's rooted? I imagine it turned to a sickly greenish and something I'm not sure what to call it! Is it gangly? My suggestion is to cut it back (be sure you have leaf nodes) and get it into as much sun as you can, it may take a while but it should come back to this beauty!🙂💘😍
