Commelina Mascarenica Care
Commelina Mascarenica prefer high humidity. Place a small humidifier nearby or place your Commelina Mascarenica plant on a tray of wet pebbles. Be sure the plant is sitting on the pebbles and not in the water. I'm not a fan of misting plants since this often encourages pests and diseases.
Commelina Mascarenica 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 Commelina Mascarenica, are not actively growing.
Feed monthly in the spring and summer with a well balanced plant food diluted to 1/2 the recommended strength.
Propagate by plant division.
