Care Instructions

  • This container does not need an abundance of water to thrive.
  • All of these plants need the soil to feel fairly dry before they need a drink.
  • To avoid over-watering, only water when the soil feels dry several inches below the surface.
  • Feeling the soil regularly for moisture levels is important to understand your plant's watering needs.
  • Fertilize monthly with houseplant food & keep away from cooling & heating vents.
