Justicia brandegeeana is a perennial shrub and will last for several years. It has become a quite common indoor plant. It is popularly known as Shrimp Plant because of its drooping, shrimp-like flower spikes.

The most prominent parts of these spikes are terminal bracts, which are heart-shaped, reddish brown or pink and up to 2 cm (0.8 inch) long. The bracts almost conceal white flowers that protrude from between them. The 10-13 cm (4-5 inch) long flower spikes are produced continuously during the growing season, which lasts for as much as 10 months a year.

Common name: Mexican Shrimp Plant, Shrimp Plant, Shrimp Flower, False Hop.
Color: Orange or dark red bracts with white flower.
Bloom time: from spring until frost.
Height: 2 ft.
Difficulty level: Easy.

Planting & Care
The “shrimp” is grown primarily for its flower heads producing a profusion of overlapping floral bracts, tipped with small white flowers with purple-spots, each having two slender petals and long yellow stamens, amid bright green leaves.

The chief effect is made by the long-lasting, unique flower bracts. The flowers last only a few days but the flower heads last for a long period of time. This makes the plant to appear in bloom all year round.

Sunlight: Plenty of bright light with some direct sunlight is essential for satisfactory production of the colourful bracts. When resting in winter, place the plant away from the window.

Soil: Plant outdoors in fertile, moist, well-drained soil. It does best in well-drained sandy or loamy soil, but will tolerate most soil types which drain well.

Water: Water sparingly enough to make the potting mixture barely moist, and allow the top two-thirds of the mixture to dry out between watering.

Temprature: Normally warm room temperatures suit this plant, but too much heat makes for soft and spindly growth. The recommended winter temperature is 18°C (64°F).

Fertilizer: Use standard liquid fertilizer once every two weeks from late winter to early autumn only, but then cease feeding so that growth slows down.

  • It should be given plenty of water when flowering, and good drainage is absolutely necessary.
  • It likes a warm, moist temperature which should not be lower than 55 degrees.
  • In summer your “shrimp” can enjoy a vacation in the garden and continue to bloom.
  • You may sink it, pot and all to the rim, in a sunny location.
  • From time to time the pot should be rotated so roots will not go through the drainage hole and become embedded in the soil.
  • Because of the restricted root system, the plant cannot be entirely forgotten but will need more frequent watering than plants growing in the ground.
  • In the fall, take up the pot, cut the plant back and re-pot it.
  • Or perhaps you will have a supply of new plants and will not care to over-winter the old one.
  • However, it will continue to bloom for several years.

Ornamental use:
  • It is a highly ornamental and amenable house plant which likes plenty of light, will tolerate full sun and enjoys the company of other plants.
