How to care for Ox Tongue
Ox Tongue needs 0.5 cups of water every 12 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.
Ox Tongue 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 Ox Tongue 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 Ox Tongue after it doubles in size or once a year—whichever comes first.
What other plant parents say
I rescued this lil ox tongue from an end of season sale at our Kroger. He was only $1! I bought about 30 plants and he is one of the maybe 5-10 that have made it, and he’s also one of the 2-3 that are thriving and doing well. He’s content just to hang out on a desk or sit in a window sill. He has nice thick leaves and has really seemed to like his pot. He has given me a new appreciation for succulents and makes me feel like I’m not the worst plant parent ever. 9/10 recommend!
