Houseplant & Indoor Plant Care

Busy Lizzie | Purple Care Guide

Caring for these Busy Lizzies is a breeze! They're tolerant of shade so are happy in a spot with moderate to bright indirect sunlight, and enjoy a drink once the surface soil has partially, but not fully dried - ideally with rainwater or distilled water. Regular deadheading is recommended as this will encourage new blooms faster, and they can be planted outside in nitrogen-rich soil with some gentle transitioning to outdoor conditions.
