Crossandra is native to India and Sri Lanka, where its blossoms are often combined with jasmine to adorn women's hair. It is related to the Mexican petunia and the yellow shrimp plant. It handles the heat with ease and can handle up to 4 hours of full sun. Bright indirect light is best💡 Crossandra thrives in warm, humid environments and cannot tolerate cold weather. 💧 The soil should be kept moist, not soggy, at all times and never allowed to dry out. Water 1-2 times a week or whenever it starts to feel light! Submerge for 4-5 minutes. Refer to our ‘Learn’ tab for watering tips!
