How to care for Red Luna
Red Luna needs 0.5 cups of water every 9 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.
Red Luna 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 Red Luna 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 Red Luna after it doubles in size or once a year—whichever comes first.
What other plant parents say
So I bought this plant from Home Depot and I thought it was cool because it had these dangling tentacle like things. I took it home, realized that it needed water badly. The soil was so dry. I watered it and the next day 3/15 tentacles were standing up and the soil was dry again. This plant is a trooper! I’ve had it only a few days, but it is very responsive and alerting to its needs so far and I love that for it.
