Acalypha is a tropical plant, grown as a houseplant, or as an annual outdoors in temperate zones. Some varieties are grown for their foliage, which can be multi-coloured, and some are grown for the often brightly-coloured catkin-like flowers. If grown outdoors the plants like full sun or part-shade, and fertile, moist but free-draining soil. Indoors they should be grown in a soil-less, free-draining compost in filtered light. ‘Firestorm’ is a small shrub grown for the brightly coloured foliage. It has narrow leaves which are green with contrasting pink to red edges.
