The purple waffle plant, also known as red ivy, is a tropical perennial with a prostrate, spreading growth habit and beautiful oval leaves with gray-green tops and purple bottom surfaces. The tiny white flowers that appear in summer are attractive but secondary to the beautiful foliage. Purple waffle plant can be grown as a garden perennial in frost-free climates, but elsewhere it is usually grown as an annual in garden beds or in containers. It also makes an excellent indoor houseplant, since it is known for having excellent air-purifying properties.


Your Purple Waffle prefers bright indirect light, but not direct sun. In less light, it may lose some of the rich purple coloring.  


Your Purple Waffle prefers consistently moist soil. Allow the water to flow freely from the drainage holes on the bottom of the pot. Always empty the saucer of any water.  Purple Waffle does not like its roots to be sitting in water.   


Your Purple Waffle loves to be misted, feel free to do this daily, especially in the winter when the air is very dry. Not only does misting provide humidity, it also keeps pests away.   


Your Purple Waffle plant can grow in temperatures between 55-80 degrees, but they do prefer a consistent temperature.  


Fertilize your Purple Waffle once a month in the spring and summer with a general indoor plant fertilizer diluted to half the recommended strength. No need to feed in the fall or winter, when plant growth naturally slows.
