How to care for Chicken Gizzard
Chicken Gizzard 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.
Chicken Gizzard may have difficulty thriving, and will drop leaves 🍃, without ample sunlight.
Place it less than 3 feet from a south-facing window to maximize the potential for growth.
Select your region to see how the current weather in your area affects the placement of Chicken Gizzard in your home 🏡.
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 Chicken Gizzard after it doubles in size or once a year—whichever comes first.
What other plant parents say
it can get a little stringy but super easy to snip off parts and propagate in water with some direct sun and make it full again. I often forget to water it for well over a week, it looks dead, and then with a heavy watering, you can watch it rise back to life.
