Product Description

Jerusalem Cherry is a tender perennial. As a houseplant, it requires full sun to thrive, but it will survive with moderate to bright light. Mist the plant often. Temperatures above 70 degrees or lack of humidity will cause the plant to lose its leaves and blooms. The plant should be potted in a rich, well drained potting soil, and kept moist during the growing cycle. Feed with a liquid 5-10-5 'blooming houseplant' fertilizer every two weeks while the plant is growing vigorously, but discontinue feeding when the plant has finished blooming. After the fruits have dropped, cut the plant back drastically, and in the spring, when ALL danger of frost has passed, plant it outside, in a semi- sunny place. If you live in a frost free zone, the plant will develop into a nice 2-3 foot, woody shrub. If you want to keep the plant going in frost zones, you will need to dig the plant up, repot, and begin the cycle all over again. Proper name: Solanum pseudocapsicum
