Common Name: Episcia Cupreata, Flame Flower
Episcia Cupreata is a tropical trailing species that, when well-taken care of, has the ability to bloom nearly all year long. When not in bloom, its foliage is bold and enjoyable to view. Higher lighting will encourage more blooms, but direct, super strong lighting will damage the plant. This species works great in a terrarium setting and enjoys being kept moist at all times but will not take well to remaining in standing water or getting soggy.
- Great for container gardening.
- Plants may grow differently depending on the environment in which they are grown in.
- Additional research should be done to provide optimum growing conditions for the plant to thrive.
