- When removing plant from container and protective packaging, avoid bending leaves and stems to avoid breakage; using a friend to help is always advised, and more fun!
- Plants become weak and stressed in their journey to you. They need to be exposed to light, and if the soil is dry, water it thoroughly.
- Specific care instructions are included in each package, and general guidelines are shown below in this article.
- Wear and tear is to be expected with plant delivery due to shipping. A small amount of damage or loss of leaves might occur.
- This is completely normal and won't hinder the overall health of your new plant.
- If this is the case, clip away and dead or damaged foliage with a sharp, clean blade.
- Leaves that are slightly drooping will perk up within a few days with adequate watering.
- We advise against repotting any plant received for at least two weeks in order to not overstress the plant.
ENJOYING YOUR NEW PLANT
Most of the plants we offer thrive in bright, but indirect, light, and the plants prefer moist, but not wet soil. Please be sure to take a look at our care tips for any recommended special care.
Place your plant in a room with a bright window, out of the path of direct sun. Keep in mind that the more sun your plant gets each day, the more water it will likely need.
- We recommend testing your plant's soil by touching it. Since there are so many factors that impact when a plant needs water, there is no perfect watering schedule for a type of plant. When the soil begins to dry out, it will need water! Test the moisture level by inserting a finger into the soil, if the first few inches feel dry, your plant is likely ready for a drink.
- Once the soil is dry, remove the inner nursery pot, and place the plastic planting pot and plant into a sink. Give the plant a good soak by running water over the roots until it begins to drain from the bottom of the pot. Allow the roots to drain for several minutes before placing back into the decorative pot.
- If you would prefer not to remove the nursery pot, simply pour about 1/4 cup to 2/3 cup of water directly onto the moss or soil. If you'd like to start with 1/4 cup, test the soil after a day or two, and if the soil feels like it has dried out in that time, feel free to increase the amount of water
- Depending on the type of plant, location, amount of light and humidity levels, (which impact soil moisture), your new plant may need water every 1-2 weeks. More frequently in the warmer months, and usually slightly less in the cooler months.
