Turtle vine / Callisia repens

Turtle Vine, scientifically known as Callisia repens, is a low-growing, trailing plant that belongs to the Commelinaceae family. This species is native to Mexico but has become popular as a houseplant in various regions due to its attractive appearance and easy care requirements. It goes by several common names, including Turtle Vine, Creeping Inch Plant, and Bolivian Jew.

The species is native to America from the southeast of the United States (Texas, Florida) via the West Indies (Guadeloupe and Martinique) to Argentina and grows in shady, rocky or gravelly spots in subtropical to tropical forests. It is naturalized in Hong Kong and grows on rooftops. In Western Australia, it is an invasive species due to its rapid growth, its tolerance to various environments and the ground cover effect which make it spread very quickly, suffocating local plants or preventing them from germinating.

Key Features :

  1. Trailing Growth: Turtle Vine has a trailing or cascading growth habit, making it suitable for hanging baskets and ground cover.
  2. Succulent Leaves: Small, lance-shaped leaves with green color, sometimes variegated with pink or purple.
  3. Indoor Tolerance: Well-adapted to indoor environments, thriving in bright, indirect light.
  4. Low Maintenance: Easy to care for, with moderate drought tolerance, but overwatering should be avoided.
  5. Propagation: Easily propagated through stem cuttings for expansion or sharing.
  • Light: Provide bright, indirect light; can tolerate some shade.
  • Watering: Allow the top inch of soil to dry before watering; avoid overwatering to prevent root rot.
  • Soil: Well-draining soil is essential to prevent waterlogged conditions.
  • Temperature: Prefers warm conditions; protect from drafts and temperatures below 50°F (10°C).
  • Fertilization: Feed sparingly during the growing season with a balanced liquid fertilizer.
