Help! What's Wrong With My Chocolate Soldier Plant?
Ask The Expert: I have the plant called Chocolate Soldier and have struggled for almost 2 years to keep it alive!! I have it in an east window and water it when it has completely dried out....yet it continues to drop leaves and no grow much?? What can I do for him??
Since Chocolate Soldiers (Episcia or â€˜Flame Violetsâ€™) prefer a shade to partial shade environment, your east exposure should be perfect. However, make sure the plant is not receiving any harsh noon day sun.
Chocolate soldiers also need a warm environment. Make sure that the plant is always in an area that stays above 65Â°. Although the plant needs a state of visual dryness between waterings, they require a humid environment. So mist the air surrounding the plant with lukewarm water. Try not to wet the leaves. Once a month use a water soluble fertilizer like peters or hi-yield or even an African Violet fertilizer.
Following this houseplant care instruction for the Chocolate Soldier should help to revive him. Please let me know if I can help you with anything else.
