Gynura Purple Passion
This distinctive plant has velvety leaves with slightly raised hairs on greenish purple stems.
Gynura aurantiaca is native to Java and is fairly easy to grow if you have a brightly lit room.
This lovely tropical indoor plant is relatively easy to grow. It only needs moderate light conditions and not too much water so this makes it ideal for beginning gardeners.
Water when the plant feels dry about an inch into the soil. The plant likes fairly even moisture but not soggy soil. The plant is susceptible to root rot, so be careful not to over-water.
The flowers of gynura aurantiaca are a bright yellow color that look a bit like a dandelion flower. The aroma of the flower is not pleasant, so snipping them off will reduce the smell from the plant.
