How to care for Brazilian Edelweiss
Brazilian Edelweiss needs 0.5 cups of water every 9 when it doesn’t get direct sunlight and is potted in a 5" pot.
Use our water calculator to personalize watering recommendations to your environment or download Greg for more advanced recommendations for all of your plants.
Brazilian Edelweiss can tolerate being far from a window and light source.
Place it less than 6 feet from a south-facing window to ensure it receives enough light to survive 💪.

Most potting soils come with ample nutrients which plants use to produce new growth.
By the time your plant has depleted the nutrients in its soil it’s likely grown enough to need a larger pot anyway.
To replenish this plant's nutrients, repot your Brazilian Edelweiss after it doubles in size or once a year—whichever comes first.
What other plant parents say
One of the least fussy plants I own. Adjusted quickly to my south facing windowsill in normal household humidity levels. I have mine in a chunky soil mix. Water the media (not the flowers or caudex) every 7-10 days, repot when the caudex reaches the edges of the pot.
