endive is a super rare houseplant 🌿 that is a fun challenge to grow and needs regular watering to thrive. They do best in long-lasting, direct light ☀️ and should be less than 1 foot from a window.
endive likes soil that is well draining. You may want to supplement with a gentle, organic fertilizer throughout the peak growing season.
endive belongs to the Cichorium genus, and is native to the Eastern Mediterranean and India.
⚠️ endive is not safe to consume. If you, a family member, or a pet has ingested any amount of plant material contact Poison Control, US (800) 222-1222, or your veterinarian. If you have children, cats, or dogs in the home, we suggest keeping this plant out of reach.

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 endive after it doubles in size or once a year—whichever comes first.
