Unique Tropical Style for Patio Growth
Why Gout Plants?
Known for its tropical-inspired looks and easy maintenance, the Gout Plant, also known as Buddha’s Belly, makes an exotic statement. And the best part is it grows without effort, so you get a little slice of island style right at home, no matter where you live. Imagine its vivid red floral stalks and rich green foliage that wow in every space.
In fact, you can take it from outdoors to in with ease. During the hotter months, it thrives on your patio, with its drought tolerant, effortless nature and stunningly exotic looks. Then, when it gets colder, simply bring it inside and place it by a sunny window to enjoy it as the temperatures drop.
And the Gout’s no-nonsense, straight-forward growth can’t be understated. In fact, you only need to water it a few times per year…and any rain during the summer months, as it grows outside, helps it continue to thrive. The Gout Plant’s sizable leaves, coral blooms and unique trunk, along with its manageable growth, fit in anywhere.

Planting & Care
1. Planting: First, full sun is important for your Gout Plant to thrive (this means about 6 to 8 hours of sunlight per day). If you’re container planting, select a container that’s only slightly larger than the plant’s shipped container. Only repot in a larger container when it appears to outgrow its pot. From there, ground and container planting instructions are the same: Dig a hole large enough to accommodate the Gout Plant’s root ball, place your plant, and water to settle its roots.
2. Watering: In late spring to early summer, water your Gout Plant weekly while letting the soil dry out in between weekly waterings. If you’re not sure when to water, simply check your plant’s surrounding soil, about 2 inches down – if the soil is dry here, it’s time to water. When Gout Plants are brought indoors for the winter, they may enter dormancy and drop their leaves – but this is normal! Continue to check the soil for adequate watering during indoor growth.
3. Fertilizing: Feed your Gout Plant once a month with a balanced fertilizer, typically during late or early summer.
4. Pruning: Remove any dead, damaged, or diseased branches may be pruned off at any time.
