Moses Plant

What is the best way to split up a Moses plant? This is a potted plant, and some of the stems are getting very heavy.

ANSWERS

Your Moses plant should be cut back in the fall and at any point on the stem. Pruning will not harm them. It just alters their appearance.
Be careful, as the foliage can irritate the skin.

Moses in a Boat

Do I need to prune or fertilize it? It is 2 years old in my office.

Your Rhoeo plant can be cut back at any point on the stems, as new growth will emerge at the end of the cut stem. Regular pruning keeps a plant full and compact and prevents legginess and excessive growth.

Feed monthly with a balanced fertilizer in spring and summer during active growth.

Moses in the Cradle

I just recently purchased the beautiful plant mentioned above from a houseplant section of a garden center. Its coloring was an eye-grabber! I did not realize until I checked online that it was an outdoor perennial. In the meantime, it is in my garden window, a bright north window. Do I need to get it planted outside?
