Brazilian Plume, Jacobinia carnea, is a small (4 foot tall, 2 foot spread) indoor shrub which performs best when grown in the full sun of a south facing window.

During the growing season (Spring through Fall), they prefer a room temperature of 60-75 degrees F. but should be kept in a cooler (55 degree) room during the dormant winter months.

Keep the soil moist at all times but never soggy, and feed every two weeks with a good all purpose fertilizer from March through October. Set the planter on a tray of moist stones to provide added humidity.

Jacobinias can be pruned back drastically in early Spring to prevent legginess. The plant can easily be propagated with 2-3 inch tip cuttings
