Likewise, how do you propagate a chenille plant?
Acalypha is apparently fairly easy to propagate. Take a 4"-5" snip from the stem, dip the cut end into hormone rooting powder and plant carefully in a mixture of moist peat and perlite. Cover the pot and plant with a plastic bag or tight plastic dome to prevent moisture from releasing.
Also Know, how do you care for a firetail chenille plant? This tropical plant needs moist soil and a well-drained space to call home. Chenille hanging plants should be kept moist but not overwatered because too much water can kill off the plant's roots. The soil should be moist to the touch but not sopping wet.
Also question is, how do you propagate acalypha?
Propagation Tips For best results, take a cutting in the spring, when the new growth emerges. Use a rooting hormone and plant the cuttings in seedling soil. Acalypha propagate most easily with high humidity, so encase the pot in a plastic bag and keep in a warm, bright (but not direct sunlight) spot.
Is a chenille plant poisonous to cats?
One look at the fuzzy flowers is sure to remind you of a chenille bedspread or robe. Prune off flowers as they fade to encourage continuous bloom. Although it's non toxic to cats and dogs, according to the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, it can be mildly toxic to people.
