Callisia repens (pink panther)

The Callisia is a genus of flowering plants in the spiderwort family. Native to the Western Hemisphere the generic name is derived from the Greek word meaning “beauty” and is commonly called Pink Panther or Pink Lady. The Pink Panther is a wonderful houseplant with tiny green and pink variegated leaves dotted along trailing stems. The Pink Panther prefers moist soil so water regularly. Position in bright indirect sunlight. The more sunlight your plant receives the pinker the foliage will be. Pinch the growing tips to encourage a compact and fuller growth.
