The leaves can be killed by winter frost but usually recover quickly to regrow vigorously in spring.


Best known as a house plant and makes for a bright green mat with little maintenance.If it gets too extensive simply cut back where not wanted with scissors - can be cut right back to the base if too tall and will re-clothe itself in fresh leaves in a couple of weeks.Give a liquid feed every few weeks to keep the healthiest green.


Mind your-own-business is quite happy growing in a gravel humidity tray for sitting your house plants on so long as the crown remains above water level - the roots can go into water - evaporation from the leaves can dramatically increase humidity around your other plants improving their growth environment as well as providing a decorative mossy carpet.
