Alternanthera (Partytime)

  • Alternanthera is a genus of flowering plants in the amaranth family, Amaranthaceae.
  • Cultivated varieties are a fast-growing, compact plant ideal for borders or rockery.
  • Attractive variegated foliage in shades of green and/or gold and often in red or bronze.
  • Grow as a perennial or as a warm-season annual in cooler climates.
  • ‘Partytime’ has green, wavy leaves with magenta splashes and streaks.
  • Some leaves are wholly pink, and some are wholly green.
LIGHT
  • It thrives most under the full sun but also grows well when placed in partial shade.
  • For intense foliage color, place it under the full sun.
SOIL
  • It can be grown in most soil types as long as it’s well-draining.
  • Add in some organic matter, like garden compost, peat moss, or manure to enhance the drainage of the soil.
WATER
  • It prefers regular, but light watering.
  • Make sure to water the plant enough to avoid letting the soil dry out completely.
  • The new plants need daily watering for the initial weeks.
  • Watering must be adjusted as per the soil type and weather.
  • Water lightly for clay soil as they sustain more moisture, but water more in sandy soils as they need increased humidity.
FERTILIZER
  • This plant doesn’t require extra fertilizer, as a high amount of feed damages the plant.
  • However, if the plant looks week, feed it some balanced liquid food during the summer season.
