Hang bridal veil in a spot that gets diffused light. During warm months, this could be on a shaded porch. In the colder months, place the plant in a room that gets bright, indirect light.
Delicate flowers over cascading foliage give bridal veil (Gibasis geniculata) its name. Also known as Tahitian bridal veil, it is hardy in U.S. Department of Agriculture plant hardiness zones 9b through 13, although this American native is grown as a house plant in other areas. A type of wandering Jew, the plant produces leaves that are light green on top and purple underneath and tiny white flowers through the spring and summer. Beyond protecting it from direct sunlight, the plant is easy to grow.
Monitor the temperature where the bridal veil is placed. It thrives in 55 to 70 degrees Fahrenheit. Extreme temperatures will harm it; bring it indoors during these times.
Water bridal veil no more than twice a week during the growing season. Use a container with adequate drainage and water the plant only when the soil is moist just below the surface. The plant does better with soil that is drier, rather than too wet; over-watering will rot the roots.
