    Alternanthera ficoidea Parrot Leaf care

    This are not picky about the soil as long as it is well-drained and not too rich. The plants grow well in both sun and partial shade, but the colours are more intense in full sun. Alternantheras are at their best when young and growing strongly. For this reason, it is best to propagate from cuttings every year. Take tip cuttings at any time and root in moist compost in warm temperatures of about 21°C or keep shoots in water until roots sprout. Older plants do not overwinter well, so new shoots may be weak and slow to appear in the early spring. Take a few cuttings in August and these can give you a good stock of strong young plants to provide cuttings the following spring.
