How to Care for Callisia repens 'Bianca' Plants

After you purchase your Callisia repens 'Bianca' plant, be sure to read the recommended care instructions to ensure your plant remains happy and healthy for years to come!

How Much Sunlight Does my Callisia repens 'Bianca' Plant Need?

How Much Sunlight Does my Callisia repens 'Bianca' Plant Need?

Callisia repens 'Bianca' plants prefer to be in bright, indirect sunlight. We recommend placing your plant in a north or east-facing window to help enhance its vibrant foliage. However, too much direct sunlight can cause your plant's coloration of its foliage to fade and become dull. It is also crucial to know that your plant's leaves will scorch if it is in direct sunlight for too long. A good rule of thumb is to always rotate your plants every couple of days. Doing so will ensure your plant is receiving enough sunlight all around instead of in one spot.

How do I Prune my Callisia repens 'Bianca' Plant?

How do I Prune my Callisia repens 'Bianca' Plant?

If you want to prune your Callisia repens "Bolivia' plant to make it look compact and bushy, pinch off the tops of the leaves when they start to grow. Doing so will stop growth from expanding and keep your plant nice and bushy. It is also a good idea to prune off any shoots that are growing differently than the rest of your plant. Doing so will help make the appearance cleaner and precise instead of leggy and unhealthy. Of course, you can always prune off any dead or dying foliage and stems of your plant at any time. It is crucial to use clean shears when pruning your plant to ensure you do not spread any diseases from previous plants.

How do I water My Callisia repens 'Bianca' Houseplant?

How do I water My Callisia repens 'Bianca' Houseplant?

When you are watering your Callisia repens 'Bianca' houseplant, we recommend doing so when your plant's soil is completely dry. This houseplant thrives in dry soil conditions and does not like to have wet, moist soil for too long. If your plant receives too much water, it can get crown rot, meaning the plant will die from the roots upward. Your plant could also get root rot disease, and this occurs when your plant's roots sit in standing water for too long. We recommend that you water your Callisia repens weekly during the summer and less frequently in the cooler winter months.

What is the best soil for Callisia repens 'Bianca'?

What is the best soil for Callisia repens 'Bianca'?

Your Callisia repens 'Bianca' plant will require well-draining soil conditions. This plant prefers its soil to dry completely before its next watering. However, when you water your houseplant, give it a deep and thorough watering and soak the soil. Any regular potting mix with sand will work perfectly for your potted plants. Your Callisia repens must be in a container that has excellent drainage holes. Doing so will allow any excess water to drain out instead of sitting at the bottom of your pot. If water sits at your plant's roots for too long, it could risk getting root rot disease. This specific disease could kill your plant if you do not catch it early.
