The Dirt

AKA bloodleaf, chicken-gizzard, beefsteak plant, or Formosa bloodleaf. Their red leaves can be variegated with green and white. They occasionally grow small, greenish-white flowers.

Part Sun


This plant likes most rooms with windows facing west or east. You could place it in a spot away from a very sunny window – as light intensity goes down quick as you move away from the light source.


Medium


Water once a week. Before watering, feel the soil, top layer should be dry, if not dry wait a day or two. If the soil still is wet you risk giving the plant too much water, you don’t want it to rot.


Pet Friendly


Yay! This plant is not toxic to our furry friends (regardless, you don’t want them to chew on this beauty).

Care Tips

This plant loves water! Water twice a week especially when in a hot or dry environment
