Give me a little prune every now and then. If my leaves start drooping make sure I’m not in a drafty area. You can also try singing to me; like the great philosopher, Rihanna, once said: ‘You can stand under my umbrella ella ella aye aye aye’.   Don't forget that I will really be a remarkable indoor plant if you keep my leaves nice a shiny with The Good Plant Co Leaf Shine .

Can be pruned once it gets to a height you'd prefer. An easy to care for indoor plant that requires medium light and can tolerate some shade. Water regularly and allow the top of soil to dry out completely in between waterings. Fertilise in warmer months.

Feeding your indoor plants

To get the best out of your indoor plants, you will need to feed them some food. The Good Plant Co Indoor Plant Food will provide all the nutrients they need to grow more leaves and help them stay strong. When the plant is actively growing during the warmer months, it needs a bit more food and water. During the slow growing season (cooler winter months) your plant doesn’t eat or drink as much (no extra winter layer of fat for these babies). Sometimes it’s ok to be a helicopter parent – respond to your plant’s needs. To keep the dust off your beautiful indoor plant leaves use The Good Plant Co Leaf Shine. Moral of the story, if it is growing new leaves then it will need more water and food!

We take great care in growing, packaging, and shipping your new plants so they’re ready to thrive in your home. This includes keeping them safe while they travel from our wholesale nursery to your doorstep.
