📚 Quiabento Care Guide

Quiabento details
💧️ Water - Low Water OR Medium Water
Low Water Needs

Quiabento is fairly forgiving when it comes to missing a watering day. These plants don't require much oversight.

For Quiabento, it is important to let the majority of the soil dry in between waterings. Be careful about overwatering your plant -- this can lead to fungal disease like root rot and pest infestations.

Growing Outdoors
If growing outdoors, you will want to plant Quiabento in an area that receives morning sunlight that's not too harsh and afternoon shade for most natural light. You can consider East facing portions of your garden as those get more morning sun.

Growing Indoors
If growing indoors, you can place Quiabento near an East-facing window that will receive morning sun for half of the day and afternoon shade.
You can also consider placing your Quiabento a few feet away from a South-facing window for diffused light. However, be careful about placing in direct sunlight of a South-facing window as that can cause leaf scorch and affect growth. You can always diffuse the harsh light of a South-facing window by using a sheer curtain.
Moderate Water Needs
Quiabento requires a moderate amount of water. You will want to allow the top few inches of soil dry in between waterings. As a general rule of thumb, depending on where you have planted and how much light your Quiabento receives, you may need to water once a week.

Growing Indoors
If you are growing indoors or in a container, you can always check the moisture of the soil by using your thum or finger. Stick it in the soil -- if it is dry, then you will likely want to water your Quiabento.

Pot selection is also important to keep your Quiabento from getting too wet. It is important to select a pot with plenty of drainage holes as this will allow excess water to train out of the pot rather than to just sit on the bottom. Drainage holes also allow air to get into the soil from the bottom of the pot. Using a terracotta pot or another type of pot made of a permeable material can also help keepQuiabento from getting too wet. Terracotta and other similar materials allow water to wick away from the soil faster than they would in a plastic pot.

Growing Outdoors
If you are growing Quiabento outdoors, the amount of light your plant is receiving is key to determining how often to water your plant. Plants that require moderate water, generally do best if they can get some respite from the sun during the day as it can dry out the soil fairly quickly. If you have planted in a sunny area, you will likely need to water this plant more often than if it is planted in a shady area. The type of soil you plant in is also important. Sandy and loamy soils tend to dry out much quicker. You can always amend soil with organic material such as peat moss or compost to encourage moisture retention.

☀️ Light - Direct Sun OR Diffused Light OR Medium Light
Direct Sunlight (Full Sun)
Quiabento thrives best in direct sunlight or full sun meaning that it loves at least 6-8 hours of bright direct light.

If growing outdoors, you will want to plant Quiabento in an area that receives sunlight throughout the day. If growing indoors, place near a South-facing window for ideal conditions. South-facing windows receive the most amount of direct light everyday.
Bright Indirect Light or Partial Sun
Quiabento can grow in bright indirect light which means it prefers at least 4-6 hours of diffused natural light (ideally 6 hours).
Growing Outdoors
When plants thrive in bright, indirect light only this means that you will want to avoid exposing them to direct sunlight unlessQuiabento is also explicitly noted to tolerate direct sunlight.

If growing outdoors, you will want to plant Quiabento in an area that receives morning sunlight that's not too harsh and afternoon shade for most natural light. You can consider East facing portions of your garden as those get more morning sun.
Growing Indoors
If growing indoors, you can place near an East-facing window that will receive morning sun for half of the day and afternoon shade. You can also consider placing a few feet away from a South-facing window for diffused light. However, be careful about placing in direct sunlight of a South-facing window as that can cause leaf gscorch and affect growth. You can always diffuse the harsh light of a South-facing window by using a sheer curtain.

Moderate Light | Partial Shade

Quiabento can tolerate and grow in moderate light and partially shady areas which means it prefers about 2-4 hours of diffused natural light. Moderate and partial shade plants can tolerate some bright, direct sun, but it's best to give them respite and plant in primarily shady areas of your space.

When plants like Quiabento grow in moderate light or partially shady areas, you will want to avoid exposing them to direct sunlight unless direct sun is specified as a light need for the plant. In which case it can tolerate a wide range of low light to direct sun conditions and is very forgiving!

If growing outdoors, you will want to plant Quiabento in a primarily partially shady area that may receive some morning sun (East side).Quiabento is a great option for shade gardens or underneath trees or near fence lines that provide cover from bright sunlight.

If growing indoors, you can grow this type of plant in a lot of different areas of your house. The only thing to keep in mind is that you'll want to avoid direct sunlight (unless specified) for Quiabento. This means if you are growing near a South-facing window, make sure to place it a few feet away from the window. South-facing windows receive the most amount of bright, indirect and direct light a day. Eastern-facing windows receive light in the morning and afternoon shade, while West-facing windows receive sun in the afternoon. North-facing windows receive the least amount of light and would be great candidates for where to place you Quiabento.
