How to Care for a Purple Waffle Plant

Use these instructions to care for a Purple Waffle Plant. This guide will tell you how to water your Purple Waffle Plant, its light, temperature, and humidity preferences; and any additional care your plant might need to help it grow.

LIGHT REQUIREMENTS

Your Purple Waffle prefers bright indirect light, but not direct sun. In less light, it may lose some of the rich purple coloring.  

WATER REQUIREMENTS

Your Purple Waffle prefers consistently moist soil. Allow the water to flow freely from the drainage holes on the bottom of the pot. Always empty the saucer of any water.  Purple Waffle does not like its roots to be sitting in water.   

HUMIDITY PREFERENCE

Your Purple Waffle loves to be misted, feel free to do this daily, especially in the winter when the air is very dry. Not only does misting provide humidity, it also keeps pests away.   

OPTIMUM TEMPERATURE

Your Purple Waffle plant can grow in temperatures between 55-80 degrees, but they do prefer a consistent temperature.   

PLANT FOOD

Fertilize your Purple Waffle once a month in the spring and summer with a general indoor plant fertilizer diluted to half the recommended strength. No need to feed in the fall or winter, when plant growth naturally slows.   

ADDITIONAL CARE

If you prefer a bushier plant, pinch the tips of your waffle plant whenever the plant shoots up new growth. Pinch the stems just above a leaf, stem or bud.  

TOXICITY

Your Purple Waffle is non-toxic to pets and humans.
