How to care for your Rhoeo Oyster
Use these instructions to care for a Rhoeo Oyster. This guide will tell you how to water a Rhoeo Oyster; its light, temperature, humidity preferences and any additional care it might need to help it grow.
Give your Oyster Plant indirect bright light to keep the bold colors. It can be in lower light but colors may fade to green.
Water your Oyster Plant when the top 50% of soil is dry. Water thoroughly until you see it flow out of the drainage hole. Be sure to discard excess water in the saucer to discourage root rot.
The Oyster Plant prefers a somewhat humid environment. Mist often, use a pebble tray, or place a humidifier nearby.
A normal room temperature between 60-80°F is perfect for your Rhoeo Oyster.
During the growing season from spring to summer, fertilize your plant once a month with a general houseplant fertilizer diluted to half strength.
The Oyster Plant is toxic if ingested by humans or pets. Handling can cause skin irritation, so wear gloves when pruning or repotting.
As your Oyster Plant matures, it will produce pups. These can be taken out of the pot once their roots are established and planted in their own pot.
