Vivid Color Suits Your Garden to a Ti
With its brilliant fuchsia and bronze magenta leaves, the Red Sister Ti Plant is a vibrant accent indoors or out. Native to the tropics of Southeast Asia, Northeast Australia, Polynesia and New Guinea, Cordyline Fructosia is actually an evergreen. Visitors to the Hawaiian Islands will probably spot this plant in front of most homes, as it is believed to bring good luck. Hawaiians also use the blade-shaped leaves in spiritual ceremonies, hula skirts and even as surfboard covers.
The Red Sister thrives in warm temperatures and humidity. Indoors, make sure to keep the plant in a bright room, but out of direct sunlight so leaves won’t scorch. Pot in well-draining soil and use a liquid fertilizer during its growing season (April to September). The Red Sister shows off its most vivid colors in cooler weather. During summer months, the leaves will turn a bit darker.

Beautiful plant arrived well packed and fresh as a daisy.
Do you have any suggestions of other Indoor plants to plant around the base of it?

We have several Red Sister plants in our yard in Florida. A few have several lengthy branches without leaves until the top 6 inches or so. Others are very full. Can we cut off at 6 inches from ground to promote growth of the parent plant? Then with the branch cut off some how prepare to be replanted, root in water, etc?

Plant arrived a little wilted, but with a drink of water, it perked right up. Didn’t help that FedEx had the plant here on Tuesday, but didn’t deliver until Thursday.

Our first time purchasing plants from a nursery. The secure packaging was a well thought out professional process. We received our 3large Red Sister Plants with each plant individually covered with a plastic wrap to prevent soil from escaping while holding down a moistured wrapping around each plant . The plants looked so vibrant and healthy and it has only been one week . They are sitting on our outdoor terrace with Manhattan in the background giving us some solace considering the current challenges we face today . Needless to say, we will be purchasing from you again !
