Wispy foliage resembles "butterflies" when wind blows through their wire like stems. Foliage is green with purple stripes, and the plant can reach 3 feet tall (may people choose to trellis this plant over time).
This plant will appreciate plenty of bright light but not intense hot sun. A sunny window with a sheer curtain over it is perfect. Keep the soil from drying out for too long, or it will crisp up / drop leaves. Also, don't be afraid to prune them back! This will encourage bushier growth. Enjoy this minimalist beauty!
Fun fact: Christia obcordata is actually a member of the legume family!! This also means they are heavy feeders, and will appreciate regular fertilizing. Their root systems are can be robust, so don't be afraid to pot up in a slightly larger pot once it becomes rootbound. Even cooler:This plant has been used to treat urinary tract infections! We love a medicinal queen!
Available as assorted (2-3 plants) in 3" nursery pot.
These plants are currently available for pick up only, as they are super delicate
