GENERAL INFORMATION

  • Gynura aurantiaca, called purple passion or velvet plant, is a species of flowering plant in the daisy family Asteraceae.
  • It is native to Southeast Asia but grown in many other places as a house plant.

SOIL REQUIREMENT

  • Because of how sensitive the roots are, you should use a potting soil that retains some moisture but drains quite well.
  • You can even add some rocks or gravel to the bottom of your pot to ensure that water is draining well.​

FEEDING/FERTILIZER REQUIREMENT

  • Gynura aurantiaca is a heavy feeder and can be fertilized once a week during the growing season.
  • Use a simple high-quality plant fertilizer that is diluted to 50% of the recommended strength.
  • During the winter months, you can reduce fertilizing to once a month or stop completely if the plant is not growing at all.​

LIGHT REQUIREMENT

  • They should be placed in areas of your home that receive bright, but filtered sunlight.
  • If they don’t get enough light, their leaves will lose the brilliant purple color that the plant is known for.​

WATER REQUIREMENT

  • The roots of purple velvet plants are incredibly delicate and can rot easily.
  • For this reason, the soil should be kept only moderately moist at all times.
  • Whatever you do, do not overwater this plant.
