  • Water a plant when the soil feels dry to touch. Water thoroughly in the summer and reduce watering for the winter & rainy season.
  • Try to water the plants in the morning around 8-10am.
  • You should remove dead, infected or damaged plant parts and throw in the garbage collector.
  • You should prune and fertilize a plant mostly in the spring season.
  • When a plant grows beyond its limit and pot size not providing enough space for the spread of roots, re-pot with fresh soil and some fertilizer.
  • While re-potting, try not to disturb the roots. Avoid any drastic change in the provided environment otherwise, the plants may get stress/shock.

Very disappointing!! Received a very small plant with tips of all the leaves drying out. The leaves were unbelievably tiny, the size of ladies' finger ! Please save your money here, it's not worth it!
