Acalypha wilkesiana - Copper Leaf

Copper leaf grows well in low to medium light but the foliage color is better in brighter light. Allow the soil to dry slightly between waterings and keep the plant drier during winter. Best growth occurs at temperatures from 60 degrees to 85 degrees, with night temperatures in the lower end of the range. Avoid exposure to temperatures below 55 degrees. Copper leaf will respond favorably to higher humidity.

Propagation is by stem tip cuttings taken at any time of the year.
