Killing plants so you don't have to

Purple Passion aka purple velvet plant ( Gynura aurantiaca )




This plant is a strange vine, it has purple fuzz on its leaves and the more sun it gets the more purple fuzz it will have on its leaves. If it is not hanging in a basket it will max out in height at less than a foot. You ‘ll need to trim it to keep it neat. It will get orange-yellow flowers with enough sun, but they are not the best smelling of flowers.

It likes bright light and to have the top inch of soil dry before watering.

To propagate, cut a piece of vine, remove lower leaves and place it in a glass of water, as you would for any vine.

Watch for mealy bugs on this plant, they will look like white dots or cottony areas. Wash them off the plant or treat with insecticide.
