The purple waffle plant stands out from other houseplants due to its unique leaves. Puckered and rippling, they develop in a way to increase the surface area over each leaf surface. The underside of each leaf is a vibrant purple color. As a shaded groundcover plant, it can make for a multicolored mat of dense foliage.
Your Purple Waffle prefers bright indirect light, but not direct sun. In less light, it may lose some of the rich purple coloring.
Your Purple Waffle prefers consistently moist soil. Allow the water to flow freely from the drainage holes on the bottom of the pot. Always empty the saucer of any water. Purple Waffle does not like its roots to be sitting in water.
