Answer: The botanical name for the chenille plant is Acalypha hispida. It commonly flowers in fall and winter. Chenille plants like direct sun during winter for about 4 hours a day. In the summer, provide filtered sunlight. Avoid drafty locations. Keep your plant evenly moist and fertilize only during late spring and summer. Leaves will drop if the soil becomes too wet or too dry. Chenille plants are bushy and need to be pruned in the early spring to keep them within bounds indoors. Light pruning can also be done throughout the year. Provide your plant with a large enough container, and it will grow and bloom at its best.
