Cordyline Fruticosa (Auntie Lou) - 10"
Scientific Name: Cordyline fruticosa
The Cordyline fruticosa, also known as the Ti Plant, is a stunning plant boasting foliage that is completely dark-pink colored. The long, lance-shaped leaves emerge from the trunk and, as the lower ones fall naturally with age, give the plant a tree-like appearance. As a tropical plant, it needs a high degree of humidity which can be achieved with a humidifier, pebble tray, or by grouping with other houseplants.

Light: Bright, indirect light. Leaves that lose their color and variegation aren't getting enough light. Moving the plant near a window where it gets bright, filtered light is ideal.
Water: Keep soil evenly moist spring through fall. In winter, allow the top inch (2.5 cm) to dry out between waterings. Use rainwater to avoid adding fluoride and chlorine that's often present in tap water. If that's not practical, allow tap water to sit for 24 hours so that the chemicals in it will dissipate.
