This plant took a beating during the recent storms. Thankfully it looks like she's going to recover. #nightphoto #nightphotography #joyweed #alternanthera #littleruby #homedepot 4/3/19

New growth. This has been a happy plant getting morning sun-afternoon shade. It's been a fun one to watch grow.. (I've never had it before). #newgrowth #babyleaves #fun #firsttime #firsttimegrowing #joyweed #littleruby. Sept 11, 2018

My newest addition to the family.. The tag on container said Josephs Coat ? I might have tagged it incorrectly. Looking forward to this one because I've never grown it before. Any tips ? #alternantherea #alternanthera #plant-help #plantadvice

Any tips on growing this ? New to me. @brightcolours @Muzz67

Should be easy to grow for you. They enjoy warm growing conditions. If you’re growing it for the foliage then keep it will trimmed. Responds well to regular pruning.
