Sunlight : Alternanthera grows in full sun or semi shade conditions where there is bright indirect sunlight. The colours are more intense in full sunlight. Best location would be outdoor or indoor, near east window where there is bright indirect sunlight at least for 5 hours.
Watering : Normal watering, once daily. Don’t let the soil dry out.
Soil : Requires well drained soil.
Best Suited Pot : 4 inch to 10 inch pot is best suited. Terracotta, black pottery, Ceramic, Jaipur blue pottery and metal will enhance the beauty of the plant.
Fertilizers : Requires little or no fertiliser, but if they aren’t growing well give them a shovelful of compost in summer. Amount of pinching done to the plant care routine determines the habit to plant growth.
