Chenille Plant (Acalypha pendula)

Acalypha pendula
Chenille plant is a lovely and unusual looking plant plant. The blooms grow long and hand down so that
 it is best grown in a hanging basket. It needs to be kept moist, but getting too dry will severely damage the plant as
well as the blooms. (The voice of experience). It blooms best in high light situations and enjoys a summer outdoor with some shade to keep it from drying out too much. Last summer mine started looking very poorly and washed out. I found out that chenille plant is a heavy feeder and it perked up when I gave it a dose of fertilizer.
