Description: 1 Potted Purple Waffle (Hemigraphis Exotica)

Purple waffle plant, also known as red ivy, is a tropical perennial that is commonly grown as a houseplant or as an outdoor annual. This is a specimen that has beautiful prostrate foliage with the added virtue of excellent air-purifying properties. Hemigraphis Exotica is best suited for terrarium environments. Low to moderate light are acceptable for Hemigraphis. Sometimes still used as an aquarium plant, Hemigraphis exotica should only be submerged for short periods of time and then taken out to regenerate
