An occasional spray of mist is my beauty secret to looking fabulous!


I can handle a little shade that's thrown my way, but I prefer to be in bright, indirect sunlight.


I don't need much water. If my soil is dry I'm thirsty and it's time to water me!

About Velvet Plant

Welcome to the enchanting world of the Velvet Plant, scientifically known as Gynura aurantiaca Purple Passion. The Velvet Plant is a true gem in the world of houseplants. Its striking, deep purple foliage is sure to capture your heart. Each leaf exhibits a soft, velvety texture, making it a standout in any indoor garden. Caring for the Velvet Plant is a pleasure. It thrives in moderate humidity, so providing a comfortable environment is key to maintaining its lush appearance. Water the plant when the top inch of soil is dry, allowing any excess water to drain.

This moderate grower typically reaches a maximum height of about 60 centimeters, making it suitable for various settings, from windowsills to tabletops. The Velvet Plant is not only a visual delight but also pet-friendly and safe for babies, making it an excellent choice for households with furry or tiny family members. To encourage a bushier growth habit, consider pinching back the tips of your Velvet Plant regularly. This will help it maintain a compact and attractive shape. The Purple Passion adapts well to different humidity levels and can thrive in temperatures between 18-24°C. Whether you're a seasoned plant parent or a beginner, the Velvet Plant is sure to bring joy to your indoor space.

At Prickle, we're committed to helping you succeed in your plant journey. If you have any questions about caring for your Velvet Plant, don't hesitate to reach out to us @prickleplantsuk.
