Callisia repens 'Gold'

Very similar to the common green type but this one is slightly sensitive and a slow grower. However it is much hardier compared to "pink lady" version. It does require some good sunlight for it to retain the gold coloration or else it will revert to a slightly jaded tones which can be unattractive.

All other care and requirements are very much similar like the "pink lady" version. Do take care to observe this plant time to time as they have the tendency to go missing suddenly if over exposed to too much rain or get attacked by pest especially snails and slugs. Sometimes rodents too love to nibble upon them and this can easily ruin the clump and therefore always keep a spare plant tucked in somewhere - just in case.

Other than that, It is truly a remarkable plant to cultivate - especially if you like challenging plants and love to upgrade your gardening experience to feel the niche in a way of growing uncommon plants.

Just to mention few pointers:

1) Watch out for overwatering
2) Good bright indirect light
3) Watch out for pest especially snails and slugs.

Occasionally spray foliar fertilizer for it to grow healthy and robust - it's a bit sensitive and therefore do check on the type of fertilizer and the dosage used.
