Angel's Earrings Cascading

This is my Angel's Earrings Cascading. I bought it at a little nursery in town. The colors are just so amazing. It's what's gotten me in plant mode. Unfortunately, there were no care instructions on the plant (and at that time I wasn't doing this internet gardening thing) and after a few days the thing looked like it was dead so I put it outside. About a week and a half later I noticed that it had new growth. I don't water it unless we're having a dry spell and I leave it in partial to full sun. It gets full sun in the morning for a few hours and then shade the rest of the day. It's finally started to bloom and I couldn't be happier. I just had to share my joy.

Nice fuchsia Jess,
Yes in your region always leave them outside in a shady spot. Indoors, the air is usually too dry for them. On the other hand when it's very hot (more than 100f) I do know some people bring them indoors if they've got air conditioning to try and keep them cool - Kath:)

OK Thanks. I had it on the porch so it wasn't too sunny under there. But, I think the summer rain was what brought it back to life. I don't think it was gettin' enough water. And, thanks for the email :D


RE: Angel's Earrings Cascading

I was wondering what kind of fruit was on the Angel earring plant and is it poisonious
