Sun: Direct & Indirect

Place your Alternanthera Brazilian Red Hots in a spot that receives bright, indirect sunlight. Avoid direct sunlight, as it may scorch the leaves.

Light: Bright

This plant thrives in well-lit environments but can tolerate lower light conditions. Aim for a balance of light to maintain vibrant foliage colors.

Water: When half dry

Water your Alternanthera Brazilian Red Hots when the top inch of soil feels dry to the touch. Ensure proper drainage to prevent waterlogging, as this can lead to root rot.

Humidity: Medium

Maintain moderate humidity levels around your plant to keep its foliage lush and vibrant. Regular misting or placing a tray of water near the plant can help increase humidity.

Pet Friendly: Yes

Alternanthera Brazilian Red Hots are non-toxic to pets, making them a safe choice for households with furry friends. However, it's still best to discourage pets from chewing on the leaves.

Pro Tip

Rotate your Alternanthera Brazilian Red Hots periodically to ensure even growth and prevent it from leaning towards the light source. This promotes a fuller, more balanced appearance.

Your Complete Guide to Pot Sizes: What Size Should You Choose?

When selecting a pot for your plant, it's important to find the right size. But with all the different options out there, how do you know which one is best? We're here to help!

MyGreenscape's pot sizes chart is a great resource for finding your perfect fit. Our easy-to-read chart takes out all the guesswork and helps you quickly choose the right size for your plant.

Smaller pots are best for seedlings or small plants just starting out. These tend to be shallow but wide, allowing enough room for the roots of the young plant but not too much where they get overcrowded. Medium-sized pots are ideal when your plant has grown from its infancy and is ready for more space. These are deeper and wider than small pots, so that it can accommodate larger root systems - making sure your plant gets enough nourishment while still giving it breathing room. Large pots are top choice if you have an established plant in need of lots of space - think trees and large shrubs! The spacious depth and width allow plenty of room for deep root systems without struggling for air or light.

No matter what size you choose, MyGreenscape has got you covered, with our pot sizes chart guaranteeing you find the perfect fit every time!
