Adenium

  • How to Care for Your Adenium

    Although this plant comes with a bit of a learning curve, it is fairly easy to care for. The biggest challenge for most people is avoiding overwatering. It is also important to pay close attention to the temperature and the amount of light your plant receives. With a little care and attention, your adenium should produce beautiful blooms that light up any room.

  • Light

    This plant thrives in full sunlight and you should place it in an area of your home where it can receive a lot of light during the day. A sunroom or a southern-facing bright windowsill are the perfect places for your new plant. If your adenium doesn’t receive enough light, you are likely to find that the blooming period is reduced.

  • Water

    During the growing season from late spring and summer, you need to keep the soil moist while avoiding saturating the soil. It is best to allow the soil to dry out completely before watering your plant. Your adenium is susceptible to root rot if it becomes too moist for long periods.

    The plant becomes dormant during the autumn and winter months and needs a lot less water. During this time of year, it’s best to minimally water your plant once a month or so. If the thick trunk is swollen, this indicates that your plant is well-hydrated.

  • Humidity

    The adenium thrives in a dry environment and does not need a lot of humidity to thrive. A typical indoor environment should be fine. However, it is best to keep your plant away from draughts and air conditioning.

  • Temperature

    This plant thrives in a dry and hot climate and will quickly die if it gets too cold. Make sure the temperature never drops below 10˚C. The optimum temperature for your plant is between 18˚C and 32˚C. Moving your plant to a warm part of your home with adequate lighting can help to extend the blooming period.

  • Food

    To encourage your plant to produce more flowers, you can feed it a liquid fertiliser diluted by 50% once a month during the active growing period. It is important to avoid fertilising your plant during the dormant period.

  • Toxicity

    The adenium is a member of the dogbane family, which is known for being highly toxic. The sap of the plant is toxic to both humans and animals. Make sure you place the plant out of reach of animals and young children and handle with care when pruning it.

  • Additional Care

    Use a bleach solution or rubbing alcohol to sterilise your pruning tools before pruning your plant. You can carefully trim the long, lanky stems to symmetrically balance the stem growth. Remove any branches that cross or rub other branches, cutting just above a leaf node or the place where the stem joins another stem.

Anthurium

  • How to Care for Your Anthurium

    Once you have one of these beautiful plants, you will want it to thrive. Caring fit your Anthurium is pretty simple when you know how. Here are some simple ways to care for your new plant.

  • Light

    This plant prefers medium light rather than direct sunlight. It’s best to keep the plant away from windows. Bright sunlight shining on the leaves can roast them and make the plant wilt.

  • Water

    Anthuriums thrive in moist environments and you should water them when the top two inches of the soil is dry. You can test the dampness of the soil by lightly pressing your fingertips into it. When dry, water the plant until the soil is slightly wet. Avoid drowning the soil in water, because this can cause the vibrant leaves to wilt. Make sure your plant is in a nursery pot that features plenty of drainage holes.

  • Humidity

    In the spring and summer, mist the leaves every couple of days or place the plant in a steamy bathroom. This will mirror the tropical conditions that allow the plant to thrive.

  • Temperature

    The ideal range for this plant is between 18°C and 26°C. This helps to mimic the temperatures in the Anthurium's natural habitat. If temperatures fall below 10°C, the plant will likely stop growing.

  • Food

    You can make the flowers more flamboyant by feeding the plant half-strength fertilizer. It’s best to do this once in the spring and once again in the summer.

  • Repotting

    Generally speaking, anthuriums tend to grow fairly slowly. Therefore, you should only need to repot your plant every two to three years. Providing a bigger pot as it grows will help to stimulate the blooming cycle.

    From time to time you may see small white root-like arms growing from the stems of the plant. These are known as aerial roots and are used to grip onto trees and other types of plants. You can snip away these roots if you want without damaging the plant.

  • Toxicity

    While anthuriums are pretty easy to look after, you need to take extra care when touching them. Their sap can irritate the skin and eyes and the leaves can be toxic if ingested. It’s a good idea to keep the plants out of reach of babies and pets.

  • Additional Care

    The stunning flower spikes usually bloom in cycles throughout the year. However, they will start to wilt as the plant reaches the end of its lifecycle. Snipping away any drooping flower stalks will boost growth and help the plant be more vibrant the following year.

Bunny Succulent

  • How to Care for Your Bunny Succulent

    With their cute and unique appearance, bunny succulents are the perfect addition to any home. These plants are very low maintenance and are ideal for people who are away from home a lot. Any time you see your bunny succulent, it's sure to put a smile on your face.

  • Light

    Although your plant needs plenty of bright light, it's best to keep it away from direct sunlight. Strong sunlight tends to burn the stems and the leaves. However, your plant will start to become brittle and spindly if it doesn't receive enough light. When this happens, the colour of the plant will slowly fade and it will stop growing.

  • Water

    These plants don't need much water in order to thrive. Bunny succulents enter dormancy during low temperatures and hot weather and only need to be watered once every week or two. Watering your plant too often can cause it to die from black rot. It is best to water your plant in the evening and make sure the soil is just slightly moist rather than wet.

  • Humidity

    This plant doesn't require a lot of humidity and you don't need to mist the top of the plant. Bunny succulents are not frost tolerant and can thrive in fairly dry conditions. However, it's best to keep them away from heaters and air conditioning units. Your plant will thrive in a humidity range of 10% to 30%.

  • Temperature

    Bunny succulents are not frost-resistant and need to be kept as warm as possible in the winter. The ideal temperature range is between 21˚C and 37˚C. Your plant will start to die if the temperature reaches below 10˚C.

  • Food

    Your plant doesn't need any additional nutrients during the growth cycle. You can add a little slow-release fertiliser to the soil in early summer, although your plant will thrive without fertiliser. Adding fertiliser during the dormancy period can damage your plant.

  • Toxicity

    Bunny succulents are not toxic to humans or animals. However, pets may become lethargic or develop an upset stomach if they chew on the leaves. Therefore, it's best to keep your plant out of easy reach of pets.

  • Additional Care

    You can prune your plant as it grows to help it maintain its striking shape. You can use a clean, sharp pair of scissors to carefully prune the fuzz into the desired shape. Take care not to cut the leaves or roots during pruning.

Calla Lily

  • How to Care for Your Calla Lily

    Although they appear quite delicate, calla lilies are surprisingly easy to grow and care for. However, it is important to make sure your plant gets the right amount of moisture and light. When cared for correctly, you will be rewarded with beautiful blooms that flourish for several weeks at a time.

  • Light

    These plants thrive in bright, indirect light. It's best to place your plant in a sunny window facing either west or east. In the month of November, when they are dormant, the plants should be allowed to rest in a cool, dark area.

  • Water

    It's essential to make sure the soil is always moist without allowing water to sit in the container. Although calla lilies need constant moisture, too much water will rot the bulb. Thoroughly watering the plant once a week and draining excess water should suffice. You may need to increase this too twice a week in the summer. Reduce watering in November when the plant enters dormancy.

  • Humidity

    Calla lilies thrive in humid and moist conditions and may need a little protection from the hot afternoon sun. If you place your plant in the window in the morning and evening, move it into a shady corner of your room before noon. Keep the plant away from heating and air conditioning vents.

  • Temperature

    This tropical plant prefers temperatures of between 15˚C and 26˚C.the plant will become dormant if the temperature falls below 10˚C. It's important to make sure the rhizome doesn't freeze in the winter months.

  • Food

    Apply liquid fertilizer once a month while your plant is in flower. Most types of well-balanced fertilizers will work fine. Avoid choosing a fertilizer blend that is nitrogen-heavy because this can reduce flowering.

  • Toxicity

    If ingested, all of the calla lilies are toxic to humans and animals. The sap can cause eye and skin irritation. It's best to wear gloves when repotting and trimming your plant.

  • Additional Care

    It would help if you repotted your calla lily each year before the growing season. Cut the leaves off at soil level when they have died. If your plant doesn't produce flowers during the growing season, pay attention to the soil pH leave. The optimum level for healthy plants is between 6.0 and 6.5.

    If the pH balance is correct, check the soil's moisture level. Press your finger three inches into the soil to make sure it is moist but not soggy. Too little light can also prevent your plant from flowering. After making the necessary adjustments, you should start to see blooms in four weeks.

Cereus Peruvianus

  • How to care for Your Cereus Peruvianus

    This striking plant will surely be a real conversation piece in any room. The plant is very easy to grow indoors and makes a great houseplant. With a little care and attention, your new plant will thrive for many years to come. 

  • Light

    This plant thrives in bright, indirect sunlight. It is best to place the pot on a window ledge or close to a window so that the plant can soak up the sunlight. As it grows, your plant will gradually bend toward the direction of the sun. You can prevent this by regularly rotating the pot in the opposite direction.

  • Water

    Make sure you water your plant as soon as the soil starts to dry out during the spring and summer months. Reduce watering in late summer and allow the soil to dry fairly throughout the autumn and winter. The plant will store water within the stems and doesn't need much water to thrive.

  • Humidity

    This plant thrives in average household humidity and does not require misting. It's best to make sure the room you place the pot in is well-ventilated.

  • Temperature

    The optimum temperature for your plant is 25°C, although it can handle higher temperatures. Make sure that the plant is not in the direct line of heating vents or air conditioning. If cold or hot air blows on the plant, it can start to turn brown and wither.

  • Food

    Your plant won't really need any fertilizer in order to be strong and healthy. However, you can add a little slow-release liquid fertilizer to the soil in the growing season to help your plant thrive. Fertiliser once a month during the growing season to prevent overfeeding.

  • Toxicity

    This plant is non-toxic to humans and animals. In fact, it is safe to drink the juice of the plant. The pulp can also be added to smoothies and a range of other dishes.

  • Additional Care

    This plant attracts mealybugs easily and they can be a major pest. However, it is easy to spot these mealybugs and it is fairly easy to get rid of them. If you notice an early-stage infestation, rub a little horticultural oil on the leaves of the plant to kill the pests.

Geranium

  • How to Care for Your Geranium

    Geraniums thrive in pots and adapt well to a range of different environments. The fragrant scent and colorful flowers make them the perfect addition to any home. However, it is important to make sure your plant receives enough light and doesn't get too cold. 

  • Light

    Your plant will grow best in the full sun. It's a good idea to place the pot close to a window and make sure it receives at least six hours of direct sunlight per day. However, your geranium will thrive if it also receives a little shade in the afternoon.

  • Water

    Make sure your plant always has plenty of water and prevent the soil from drying out. The pot can comfortably sit in a little water without causing the roots to rot. However, you need to be careful to avoid splashing the flowers and leaves with water because this can cause diseases.

  • Humidity

    Geraniums grow well in normal household humidity and don't need to be misted. Very high humidity tends to encourage bacterial and fungal infections, which can be a major issue. However, very low humidity tends to encourage spider mites.

  • Temperature

    Geraniums are fairly tough and can thrive in a range of different temperatures. They can happily live in temperatures of up to 27°C during the summer months. Your plant will also be fine if temperatures drop to around 10°C. Your plant will stop blooming if it gets too hot and start blooming again in the winter. If your geranium stops growing during the winter, consider moving it to a cooler location.

  • Food

    You should feed your plant a slow-release fertilizer or liquid fertilizer once a month. Carefully follow the instructions on your fertilizer when adding it to the soil. Choosing a fertilizer containing 200 to 250 ppm of nitrogen is best.

  • Toxicity

    These plants are not toxic to humans or animals and can be placed in any area of your home without concern. The petals of geraniums have been used in special teas for centuries. They are also often used to decorate cakes and other sweet treats.

  • Additional Care

    Removing the spent blooms from your plant is best to encourage new flower growth. This process is called deadheading and is very quick and easy. You can also pinch the growing tips of the young plant to help shape the flowers and encourage growth.

    Aphids, whitefly and spider mites are attracted to geraniums and can pose a problem. Check the leaves and stems carefully for pests and treat quickly if necessary.

Hydrangea

  • How to Care for Your Hydrangea

    Hydrangeas are very easy to care for as long as they have enough water. Pruning the plant once a year will help it to thrive. With a little care and attention, you can enjoy beautiful blooms for several months of the year.

  • Light

    It's best to place your pot in an area that receives plenty of direct sunlight. While hydrangeas thrive in full sun, too much shade can reduce the amount of flowers they produce. It's best to place your pot close to a window so that it can bask in the sunlight.

  • Water

    Your new hydrangea needs to be watered every day or two in the morning before the sun reaches its peak. At the height of the summer, you may need to increase this to twice a day. You can reduce this to two or three times a week in the autumn and winter. While you need to give your hydrangea plenty of water, make sure it doesn't sit in soggy soil. Choosing a pot with good drainage should help prevent this issue.

  • Humidity

    Hydrangeas thrive in moderate to high humidity. Dry climates can cause their leaves to turn brown and become dry. However, you can revive them by gently misting the leaves during the hottest part of the day. Dry winter air can cause wilting and damage and you should keep your plant away from drafts and heat sources.

  • Temperature

    Hydrangeas prefer fairly mild temperatures. When they are actively blooming, they thrive in temperatures of between 10˚C and 15˚C. They prefer a temperature of around 7˚C in the autumn and winter.

  • Food

    It's best to avoid using high-nitrogen fertilizer. In the spring, add a layer of organically rich compost to the soil. This will help to make sure the plant produces plenty of beautiful flowers. The best option is a general all-purpose fertilizer. You can also apply a slow-release fertilizer once in the spring and again in early autumn.

  • Toxicity

    All parts of the hydrangea are poisonous to both humans and animals. Prolonged skin contact can cause irritation, a rash or dermatitis. Eating parts of the plant can cause diarrhea, nausea, and vomiting.

  • Additional Care

    Some hydrangeas can't handle the heat and will start to wilt if they get too hot. You can add a thick layer of mulch to the pot to help the soil retain moisture and keep the plant cool.

Kalanchoe

  • How to Care for Your Kalanchoe Plant

    This pretty succulent adapts well to an indoor environment and is very easy to grow. It is sure to add a splash of colour to any room and the flowers last for several weeks. As long as you make sure your plant gets enough light, it should provide many years of beautiful blooms.

  • Light

    It is best to place your plant in a bright and sunny location near an east or west facing window in the summer months. During the winter, move the pot close to a south-facing window. Allowing the plant to get fourteen hours of darkness will extend the bloom period to almost the entire year. Placing the plant in direct sunlight will scorch the leaves and reduce the blooming period.

  • Water

    Kalanchoes adapt well to dry environments and do well with minimal water. You simply need to saturate the plant every two weeks or three weeks during the winter months. Allow the soil to dry out completely before watering your plant to help prevent root rot. The leaves are capable of storing water and the plant will remain lush even when the soil is dry.

  • Humidity

    These plants adjust well to moisture levels and don’t need a lot of humidity to thrive. As long as your plant is kept away from fans and air-conditioners, it should be happy and healthy.

  • Temperature

    The optimal temperature range for your plant is between 12ºC and 26ºC. This means that your plant is sure to thrive indoors. You need to make sure that the temperature doesn’t fall below 10ºC in the winter months. If the temperature drops too low, the plant will stop growing. This is likely to mean that you are not treated to beautiful flowers during the next blooming period.

  • Food

    You should feed your plant a well-balanced fertilizer blend once a month during the spring and summer months. Avoid feeding your plant during the winter months, because this will reduce the bloom period. If your plant is reluctant to bloom, feed it a fertilizer that boasts high phosphorus levels.

  • Toxicity

    All parts of this plant are poisonous if ingested and it should be kept away from young children and animals. The naturally-occurring poisons in the sap are known as cardiac glycoside toxins, which can affect the heart. These toxins can also directly interfere with the heart muscle’s electrolyte balance.

  • Additional Care

    Pinching back the stems of your plant will promote more vigorous blooming and help to maintain the shape of the plant. You should remove dead flowers and gently spray or wipe the leaves to remove dust. After your plant has finished blooming, you should cut off the flowering head and allow the plant to rest for a month. Place the plant in darkness for fourteen hours a day followed by ten hours of bright light. After repeating this process for six weeks, new buds should start to develop. You can then resume normal light conditions.

Sansevieria Stuckyi

  • How to Care for Your Sansevieria Stuckyi

    Sansevieria Stuckyi is a very popular indoor plant and it makes a striking addition to any home. The Sansevieria Sticky is very easy to care for. While it needs hardly any fuss, it will thrive if given a little attention. 

  • Light

    Although your plant can adapt to a range of lighting conditions, it will thrive in indirect sunlight. It's best to place the pot a few feet for an east or west-facing window. Ideally, your plant should absorb around five or six hours of sunlight daily. Cover the window with a sheer curtain or shade or move the pot if the light falls directly on your plant.

  • Water

    This ornamental plant only needs to be watered once every couple of months during the winter. It is important to avoid overwatering because this can cause the plant to rot. Make sure you feed the soil before watering, and make sure the soil is completely dry before adding more water. Make sure the soil is very light and well-draining and improve the soil's aeration by adding some river sand if necessary.

  • Humidity

    Sansevieria Stuckyi plants adapt well to tropical climates. Avoid placing your plant close to a heating vent because the leaves will quickly become dry and brittle. You also need to make sure the plant is not in a draughty area or close to an air conditioning unit.

  • Temperature

    Because the plant is native to West Africa, it prefers warm temperatures. The optimum temperature range is between 13˚C and 29˚C. If the temperature drops below 10˚C, your plant is likely to die.

  • Food

    Your plant will not usually need any extra nutrients to remain healthy. However, you can increase the chances of blooming by sprinkling a little high phosphorus fertilizer onto the soil in the spring. Be careful not to add too much fertilizer because this can cause a nutrient imbalance in the soil. This nutrient imbalance can have a negative impact on the plant's growth.

  • Toxicity

    The Sansevieria Stuckyi contains saponins, which are mildly toxic to dogs and cats. The leaves of the plant can irritate your pet's mouth and can cause digestive issues. If you have pets, make sure you place your plant in a location that is not accessible to your pet.

  • Additional Care

    If the leaves start to appear yellow, this indicates that your plant is in distress. This is usually due to either overwatering or the environment being too cold. Move the pot to a warmer location and make sure the soil is completely dry before watering the plant.

Snake Plant

  • How to Care for Your Snake Plant

    Snake Plants are very easy to care for and are almost impossible to kill. This makes these the perfect houseplants for beginners. As long as you give it a little love every once in a while, your Snake Plant should be fine. 

  • Light

    While your Snake Plant can adapt to any light level, it thrives in bright light. The brighter the light, the faster your plant will grow. It's important to take a few weeks to acclimate the plant if you are moving it from indirect to direct light. This will help to make sure you avoid scorching the foliage. Ideally, you should place your plant in indirect bright light. This means close to a window when sunlight doesn't shine directly on the plant. 

  • Water

    Because snake Plants come from the desert, they need very little water and can be treated in the same way as a cactus. Only water your plant when the soil is completely dry to the touch. Once the soil is dry, water the plant thoroughly and discard any excess water that flows into the saucer. This practice will help to encourage a healthy root system. 

  • Humidity

    Snake Plants prefer a very dry environment. There is no need to mist the leaves to keep them vibrant. Avoid placing the plant in draughty areas where the leaves could become chilled. 

  • Temperature

    The best temperature range for this plant is between 12°C to 30°C. These plants thrive in warmer temperatures and will tend to grow much more quickly. In the winter months, it's a good idea to place your plant close to an indirect heat source. 

  • Food

    You can feed your plant a little liquid fertilizer every six weeks. This will help the leaves to look more vibrant and glossy. 

  • Toxicity

    While the leaves are non-toxic, the plant is toxic to both humans and pets if ingested. It's important to keep the plant out of the reach of pets that may be tempted to nibble the leaves. 

  • Additional Care

    Snake Plants reproduce by growing new plants, which are known as pups, close to the base of the mother plant. You should carefully remove the stems and leaves of each pup as soon as they become a few inches tall. You can then plant the pups into new pots.
