Calceolaria herbeohybrida - Pocketbook Plant, Slipperwort


Pocketbook plant is an annual that is forced into bloom, sold, then discarded once the blossoms have faded. Grow them in partial shade as the flowers burn in full sun. Keep the soil moist but not wet. They like cool temperatures, preferably 60 to 65 degrees. If planted too deep, or overwatered, expect problems with stem rot. Good air circulation will help control diseases.

Propagation is by seed.
