Care tips for Cryptanthus ‘Betty Ann Prevatt’

Soil: Medium, well-draining soil.

Light: This variety will flourish in low, indirect light, but its colors will intensify in brighter, indirect light.

Water: Allow soil to dry before watering.

Humidity: Medium humidity will suffice, but higher humidity will promote best growth. If you live in an area with low humidity, add a humidity tray or mist several times a week.

Temperature: These plants grow best in temperatures within 55-80°F. During the cooler months when the temperatures fall below 55°F, take care to keep your Cryptanthus away from drafty areas.

Fertilizer: Use a dilution of 10-10-10 applied every other watering during the growing season. Higher fertilizer levels may attract pests.
