Commelina Auriculata Care
Average to higher household humidity is best. If the air is too dry, the leaf tips of a Commelina Auriculata plant turn brown. Place a Commelina Auriculata 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.
Commelina Auriculata plants need very bright light.
Use a well- aerated soil that drains quickly. If the soil seems heavy and clay-like, add some peat moss and perlite.
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 Commelina Auriculata, are not actively growing.
Feed monthly in the spring and summer with a well balanced plant food diluted to 1/2 the recommended strength.
Commelina Auriculata plants are easily propagated from Stem Cuttings.
