Plectranthus verticillatus

The Plectranthus verticillatus is also called 'money plant' or 'Swedish Ivy'. It is a unique plant that you will not easily encounter, let alone organic ;-) When the stems become long enough, they will droop a bit, making the plant also very suitable as a hanging plant.

BOTANY | The Plectranthus verticillatus originates from the forests of South Africa.

SCENTED | When you rub the leaves you will smell a fresh lemony scent.

PLANT CARE | The Plectranthus is a 'semi' succulent plant and is very easy to care for. The ideal plant for the novice plant lover. Keep the soil very slightly moist. Organic plant food is recommended during the growing season. If you take good care of Swedish Ivy, you will be rewarded with small light purple flowers in spring and autumn.


South Africa - Forest - Ground cover - Moderate humidity - Indirect sunlight

When you know where the plant originally comes from, you can imitate that environment at home or at work as closely as possible. Then your plant will feel completely at home in no time.


Be careful with over watering. With succulents in particular, an occasional splash of water is sufficient. When water remains at the bottom of the pot, root rot occurs and the plant usually does not survive this.

Flower pot

The kraft paper pot is waterproof for several weeks to months, depending on the water needs of the plant. The pot is 100% biodegradable and plastic-free. As soon as moisture spots appear in the soil, the pot is no longer watertight and it is best to repot the plant. After repotting, the pot can be handed in with the waste paper to be recycled.
