Rhoeo Plant Care

Rhoeo spathacea can be propagated by seeds, cuttings, or division. In most areas, Rhoeo is considered an annual, though, in fact, it is a tender perennial. This means that it can only tolerate temperatures down to about -6 degree Celsius before they are killed off. Keep in mind that this is the temperature that will kill them. Overwatering should be prevented when only when the soil feels dry to touch.

Proper drainage facilities should be provided to the plant otherwise the roots rot.
