How to care for Paddle Plant
Paddle Plant needs 0.5 cups of water every 12 when it doesn’t get direct sunlight and is potted in a 5" pot.

Paddle Plant love being close to bright, sunny windows 😎.
Place it less than 1ft from a south-facing window to maximize the potential for growth.
Paddle Plant does not tolerate low-light 🚫.
Select your region to see how the current weather in your area affects the placement of Paddle Plant 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 Paddle Plant after it doubles in size or once a year—whichever comes first.
What other plant parents say
I love this guy! I love the color and texture of the leaves, and it had a really easy tell for when it wants water (the leaves get just a bit squishy to the touch). He’s grown quite a bit for me, too! Loves my south-facing window, I just rotate him every watering so he keeps growing upright =)
