Creeping Jenny needs 0.5 cups of water every 9 when it doesn’t get direct sunlight and is potted in a 5" pot.

Creeping Jenny 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.

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 Creeping Jenny after it doubles in size or once a year—whichever comes first.
What other plant parents say
It’s very satisfying to water this plant. Their leaves start to look very sad and tired then once they get a drink, they are awake and happy again! I would recommend this plant for anyone who loves bright colours and trailing vines. The speed that it grows could be appealing or annoying depending on your space, if you don’t have a roomy spot for her then she won’t look great!
mine is yellowing and isn’t growing a lot but she seems to be dealing with it as she has a new stem coming through the center so hopefully she doesn’t die. she’s pretty cute though just crisp easily unless I’m doing something wrong. covers a lot of dirt as it acts like a weed or ground cover in a garden it gets tangled up along with my other plants but it’s a cute plant to have hanging. mine says it is a creeping Jenny (yellow)
