Care Instructions:

  • Light: Provide the Persian Shield with bright, indirect sunlight to maintain its vivid leaf color. It can tolerate some morning sunlight but should be shielded from harsh midday sun.

  • Temperature: Keep the plant in a warm environment with temperatures between 60°F to 80°F (15°C to 27°C). It is sensitive to cold temperatures, so protect it from drafts and avoid exposing it to temperatures below 50°F (10°C).

  • Water: Keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged. Water thoroughly when the top inch (2.5 cm) of soil feels slightly dry. Reduce watering during the dormant winter months.

  • Humidity: Persian Shield appreciates high humidity levels, ideally between 50% to 80%. Regular misting or using a humidity tray can help create the right environment.

  • Soil: Plant in well-draining, organic-rich potting mix that retains some moisture without becoming waterlogged.

  • Fertilization: Feed with a balanced, diluted liquid fertilizer every 4-6 weeks during the growing season (spring and summer). Reduce or stop feeding in the fall and winter.

  • Pruning: Trim the plant to maintain its shape and encourage bushier growth. Pinching back the growing tips can help create a fuller plant.

  • Pests and Diseases: Watch for common garden pests like aphids or spider mites and treat promptly if detected. Good airflow can help prevent fungal issues.

  • Repotting: Repot when the plant becomes root-bound, typically every 2-3 years. Select a slightly larger pot with drainage holes.

The Persian Shield’s enchanting, shimmering foliage can bring a touch of the tropics to your indoor or outdoor space. With proper care, it will continue to exhibit its stunning colors and become a standout feature in your plant collection.
