Iresine herbstii is a relatively uncommon plant, but one with striking foliage. Bloodleaf plant has about 30 species all of them native to South America. Aureoreticulata is one of the common species with green leaves, yellow veins and blood red stems. 

PLANT CARE:

  • Partial shade for smaller plants, more light when the plant gets bigger. Leggy Iresine is a sign of not enough light.  
  • Water regularly, but don't let plant to sit in water. You know it's time to water when top soil is dry to the touch. Under watered plants can develop brown edges on leaves or drop them. During winter months cut back watering maintaining the soil moist, but not soggy. Using a Sustee Moisture Meter stick helps to figure out how much moisture is in the soil so you don’t under or overwater.
  • Iresiine loves warm environment! It requires a temperature of at least 18°C. Indoors, they will prefer window boxes or bathrooms, which often have warmth and humidity. If you have a glasshouse, they will thrive there! During winter mist regularly and keep in warm room temperatures.
  • Normal room humidity of 50% should be fine.
  • Fertilise your Bloodleaf every two weeks during growing season. 
  • You should consider cutting Iresiine when it gets too long. Cutting the stems will make it more bushy.

  • Pet friendly.
