Purple Waffles are a good option for a hanging pot or draping over a shelf. They prefer bright indirect sunlight to keep their colours vibrant. If you notice the leaf colour starting to look “washed-out”, it may be receiving too much light. Purple Waffles prefer a well-draining soil and are known for dramatically wilting when they need water. Fertilizing once per month with a thin layer of compost or diluted low-potency chemical fertilizer is advised during spring and summer. Regular misting is recommended to prevent pest infestation and keep the edges of the leaves from browning. When happy, Purple Waffles grow small white flowers which are typically short lived.
