Groundcover and low-growing 2ftSmall plant 2-5 ftFull sunModerate waterOrnamental foliage

The Deuterocohnia sp. (Abromeitiella) plant can reach anywhere between two to five feet tall and is suitable for use as a groundcover in low-growing areas, with ornamental foliage. The Abromeitiella is native to Argentina, Bolivia, and Brazil and is a great addition to your dwelling as an ornamental plant. It prefers a location in a full sun, where it can receive abundant light, as well as a moderate amount of water. Usually, when the climate is cold, they need less water, however, they should not be totally deprived of it. The Abromeitiella can be grown in USDA Zones 9-11.

For those living in a colder climate, it is best to plant the Abromeitiella in a pot and bring it inside during the winter months. This is due to the cold temperatures they cannot survive. When grown in a pot, the Abromeitiella should be watered every one to two weeks and during the winter months, this can be further reduced to once a month or month and a half. When you water, ensure that the soil is completely damp but not overloaded with water otherwise the roots can become soggy and damage the plant. Also, providing good drainage is essential for the Abromeitiella, as without it, their roots can become weak. If you want to fertilize your Abromeitiella, it is best to do it during the summer months, when they are actively growing.
