Light: Give these plants bright light at all times for close growth and brilliant leaf colour. Plants can normally be grown at a short distance from a sunny window without too much loss of colour, but growth will probably become straggly and colours will tend to fade as this distance lengthens.
These plants can be taken outside in summer. Keep them out of the direct sunlight.
Temperatures: They like warmth but they can tolerate temperatures down to 12°C (54°F). In cool conditions they grow very slowly.
Zebrina pendula tolerates dry air very well.
