The creeping Charlie plant (Plectranthus australis), an easy plant that is also referred to as Swedish Ivy. Creeping Charlie does well in all soils except heavy clay. Potted plants do well in a blend of equal parts sphagnum peat moss, finished compost and perlite, vermiculite or sand. Full sun results in stunted plant growth, so choose a spot with dappled sunlight to really make the creeping plant grow. Ideally, creeping Charlie should receive four to five hours of filtered sunlight daily. This plant does best in soil with medium moisture. Water the creeping Charlie once or twice weekly to keep the soil moist but not wet. Excess water should flow through the drain hole at the bottom of the container, indicating sufficient watering. Drain any excess water from the planter's catch basin. Insert a finger in the soil around the plant to check for soil moisture. If the soil is dry past the first knuckle, the plant needs water. Fertilize this plant regularly at 1/2 the recommended strength from May to October and monthly from November through April. Trim when straggly.
