Purple Passion or Velvet Plant | The Spruce
(Gynura aurantiaca) Plant in good-quality potting soil & place in bright, filtered light to maintain color. Keep soil evenly moist, with slight reduction in watering from fall to late winter. Use half-strength fertilizer every 2 wks during growing season & once a month in winter. Trailing habit up to 3 ft; train up a support, or pinch back shoots to keep more compact & encourage new shoots. Cut back in spring or summer if plant becomes too large. Cuttings are easily rooted in water. Can produce orange-yellow thistle-like blooms in late fall/winter – many gardeners remove flowers as they appear because of their unpleasant smell. #houseplant
