Aneilema Acuminatum Care
Average to higher household humidity is best. If the air is too dry, the leaf tips of a Aneilema Acuminatum plant turn brown. Place a Aneilema Acuminatum plant on a tray of wet pebbles to increase the humidity around it. Be sure the plant is sitting on the pebbles and not in the water.
Aneilema Acuminatum plants need very bright light.
Use a potting soil that retains moisture yet drains quickly so that the roots are not always wet.
60°-85° F (16°-19°C) during the day and a little cooler at night.
Allow the top inch or two of soil to dry out before watering. Keep the soil drier during the winter when all houseplants, not just a Aneilema Acuminatum, are not actively growing.
Feed monthly when a Aneilema Acuminatum plant is producing new growth with a water-soluble houseplant food diluted to 1/2 the recommended strength. Using a plant food high in nitrogen helps a Aneilema Acuminatum produce more colorful leaves. Over- fertilizing is another reason why the bright colors in the leaves start to fade.
Aneilema Acuminatum plants are easily propagated from Stem Cuttings.
