Keep your China Doll plant in very bright natural light for 6+ hours but not direct, piercing sunlight. Heated rooms and green houses are an excellent place for these plants. They like watering every 3 days or more depending on your individual plant. Pot should have adequate drainage to prevent against root rot, a very nasty root disease.

China Doll plants like very bright shade and some morning or late afternoon sun. They like to be grown in a rich potting soil and kept slightly moist. China Dolls do well outside during warm weather if kept out of the hot sun, but water them more often if they are put outside. They make nice pretty patio plants!

The China doll plant is grown with a chemical to stunt the growth and wears off when the plant grows allowing the legs to become longer and lanky. To prune, simply cut to height and cut back on watering until the new growth starts to appear. Water about 3 times a week.

A China Doll plant needs to be placed somewhere where there is lots of light but no direct sun. You also need to keep it away from draft.

Your plant needs to be kept in a bright place out of direct sunlight and protected from the cold. Regular watering, and pruning when it gets straggly

Your China doll plant needs very bright light. It is best to keep your plants soil moist. Once a month you should fertilize your plant.

Give your China Doll a sunny location, plant food once a month, and do not over-water. Let the soil dry out slightly between watering intervals.
