📚 Xoconostle Care Guide

Xoconostle details
💧️ Water - Low Water
Low Water Needs

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

For Xoconostle, 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 Xoconostle 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 Xoconostle near an East-facing window that will receive morning sun for half of the day and afternoon shade.
You can also consider placing your Xoconostle 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.

☀️ Light - Direct Sun OR Diffused Light
Direct Sunlight (Full Sun)
Xoconostle 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 Xoconostle 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
Xoconostle 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 unlessXoconostle is also explicitly noted to tolerate direct sunlight.
