Red Flame Ivy
Size (Can grow to)
The Hemigraphis alternata is native to Java and is commonly called Red Flame Ivy or Waffle Plant. This is a great plant that you dont see around too much, its ruffled deep red leaves give it great colour and texture. It has many uses including growing in aquariums and ponds, butterfly farming, green walls, terrariums, indoors and patios. The Hemigraphis alternata prefers bright, indirect sunlight. If the sunlight directly reaches the leaves it can weaken the colour and burn the leaves, so a filtered light position will keep the deepness of the colour and shorter leaves and nodes. If your plant starts to grow more green leaves you could afford to move it to a brighter position. For optimum growing ensure evenly moist well drained soil.
