Can I grow callisia repens, turtle vine, in the house without any sunlight, only in shade?


  • Bamboo is right. The link I added lists it as being able to grow inside in many types of light, including partial or complete shade. – Sue Saddest Farewell TGO GL Dec 30 '16 at 19:26
  • Thanks for your reply. I have planted it inside my house. Let us see how it grows. – user3110224 Jan 8 '17 at 3:55
  • Thanks for letting us know. An update in the future would be great. I hope it stays healthy and grows well! – Sue Saddest Farewell TGO GL Jan 8 '17 at 4:56

Should be fine - needs warmth and good daylight, but not having any sun as a houseplant is fine, even outdoors it prefers dappled sunlight or partial shade, see here https://www.gardenseeker.com/indoor-plants/callisia_repens.htm

  • Thanks for your reply. I have planted it inside my house and it has been more than one month now it is still green. Let us see in further days also if it grows. – user3110224 Jan 8 '17 at 3:56
