Gynura aurantiaca - Purple Passion Plant (Velvet Plant)
Purple Passion Plant has green leaves that are covered in soft purple hairs giving the plant a purple sheen. It has an upright habit when it's young, but becomes more spreading and almost vine-like as it matures. Also know as Velvet Plant.
- Light: Indirect Sunlight – This plant needs at least some natural light so place it somewhere with windows nearby.
- Water: Thirsty – This plant can only go 1 to 2 weeks without water so check weekly and water when the top two inches of soil dry out.
- Tips: Like many houseplants, it would rather be too dry than too wet so if you are unsure about whether it needs water, wait a day or two and check again.
