How to care for Eggplant
Eggplant needs 0.5 cups of water every 9 when it doesn’t get direct sunlight and is potted in a 5" pot.

Eggplant love being close to bright, sunny windows 😎.
Place it less than 1ft from a south-facing window to maximize the potential for growth.
Eggplant does not tolerate low-light 🚫.
Select your region to see how the current weather in your area affects the placement of Eggplant 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 Eggplant after it doubles in size or once a year—whichever comes first.
What other plant parents say
I have my eggplant growing in an aero garden in my room and in less than 2 months it went from seeds to huge and has 3 or 4 buds already! When I prune it, I give all the leaves to my fish who love the snack (making sure not to leave the little thorns on).
