Callisia Repens is a gorgeous low-growing houseplant, featuring dainty tear-shaped leaves with soft pink undersides. This tropical plant requires bright, indirect light and a weekly watering. These plants are sensitive to direct sun and overwatering. Let your Callisia dry out moderately between waterings, and do not let the soil get soggy. This can lead to root rot and leaf loss. We recommend using a well-draining soil mix. 



Callisia will need to be kept in the shade outdoors. Allow the soil to dry out in between watering. Avoid freezing temperatures, these plants thrive above 55 degrees fahrenheit.
