Light: Provide it with bright, indirect lighting. Not too bright, not too dark.
Watering: Before watering, allow the top inch of soil to dry. Water thoroughly, but make sure the soil is somewhat moist.
Soil: To avoid waterlogging, use well-draining potting mix. You can improve drainage by adding perlite or sand.
Fertilization: During the growing season (spring and summer), feed your Turtle Vine a balanced liquid fertilizer diluted to half strength every 4-6 weeks.
Pruning: Trim back leggy growth to encourage bushiness. Pinch or cut stems immediately above a leaf node to encourage branching.
