During the warm months, small, white, flowers are produced in spikes at the ends of the stems, which contrast beautifully with the dark foliage.

Purple Waffle Plant Care Guide

Watering: Growing purple waffle plants need evenly moist soil. Consistent watering of well-drained soil promotes the growth and well-being of the plant.

Light: Purple waffle plant prefers medium to bright light indoors. If the plant doesn’t get enough light, it will lose some of the rich purple colorings. If it gets too much direct sun as a houseplant, the leaves will bleach and show signs of sunburn.

Potting Mix: You can use any good potting mix. However, use a pot with good drainage. The preferred soil for this plant is humus-rich, crammed with lots of organic material. It should be rich and remain moist but drain off excess liquid well. You can also use a peaty soil mix. Avoid hard clay soils, as the roots have difficulty in those.

Fertilizer: Fertilize the purple waffle plant a couple of times a year (at minimum) to keep it happy. You can feed them more frequently if you wish, especially if you grow them in a bright spot. You can use any houseplant fertilizer.

Temperature:  Purple Waffle Plant can grow in temperatures between 55-80 degrees, however, they do prefer a consistent temperature.
