I picked some from my grandmothers old property I live in Texas and where I’m at I don’t feel like we have good soil. Is this ok to pot for a few weeks so it can root then hopefully by then I’ll have nutrients to add to my soil.

Potting and Repotting Purple Heart

Though most commercial potting mixes will work just fine, the soil should ideally include peat moss (or coco coir, for a sustainable alternative), perlite, and compost.6 days ago

Flower Color: Pink, purple

Soil Type: Moist, well-drained

Soil pH: Acidic to alkaline (6 to 8)
I hope this helps!! 🪴 🌱
