We ship a robust, sun-grown plant of at least 5 months, cultivated in a 16-20 cm pot. This is a fast growing species and it is produced once or twice a year so the specimens can be 40-100 cm tall. We will always try to select a compact robust plant for you. In most cases we will prune the plant before shipping. This is because some plants are too tall to fit in the box and also because the upper branches are too tender, so pruning will be helpful during the transit. It will surely grow back soon because it is a fast growing plant, commonly pruned in gardens. Depending on the season, this plant can be sent bare-rooted, with the roots wrapped in moist sphagnum or perlite. Be prepared to plant it in a pot of at least 18 cm, filled with good garden soil and place it in full sun, at 16-30 C. We ship worldwide.
In Canarius.com you will find lots of traditional Acalypha cultivars from the Pacific. They have been around for centuries and they are all very robust. These acalyphas are commonly planted in the gardens of the Canary Islands. They are so hardy in our climate that they are often planted in roads and roundabouts.
