Iresine Herbstii make a stunning statement plant. They have bright green leaves with yellow and pink markings throughout. Their stems are also a bright prick colour. They certainly add a pop of colour to your houseplant collection.
Where do I come from?
I am native to Brazil.
They prefer bright indirect light. Avoid placing in shade as the leaf markings may fade and avoid direct sunlight.
They need to be watered regularly and don’t like to dry out between waterings, so keep soil slightly moist.
They love humidity so place it in a watered pebbled tray or place containers of water around your plants which can increase the moisture in the air. It will also benefit from regular misting.
The bathroom can also be a great spot.
Am I pet friendly?
For any pet parents out there - this houseplant is non-toxic.
What Size am I?
I come in a 12cm pot & approx 25cm tall
