Caring for Acalypha hispida alba

If growing it in a container, the first step in the care of Acalypha wilkesiana is to ensure the pot is twice the size of the plant’s root ball. The second part of copper leaf plant care is ensuring that it has good drainage, and watering it several times in a week will ensure that.
