  • A gorgeous tropical plant with shimmery purple and green foliage, Persian shield is often found in annual gardens and potted in containers. We think these 2" plants would be beautiful in a terrarium while still small. Indoors as a houseplant, it tends to bloom with small purplish-blue flowers in winter. Or you can pinch off the flowers if you prefer a fuller plant instead. As plant grows, pinch back regularly to maintain a more compact mature habit, as leggy mature plants may suffer.

    Potted in a 6" container.

    Medium to bright indirect light; brighter light will maintain color better
    Water once every 1-2 weeks; prefers humidity
    Tropical soil; fertilize in summer
    No known toxicity to cats and dogs
