When asked about what plant is low maintenance, one of my best recommendations is the devil’s ivy. Not too fussed about watering, sunlight, humidity, name it! And if you are a fan of trailing or climbing plants, then here is you winner!
The plant also gives something back in return for your loving care: according to the NASA Clean Air Study, Devil’s Ivy is one of the plants that helps improve the air quality in your home.
Enjoys a light spot, but preferably not in direct sunlight or a draught. The paler the leaves, the more light the plant needs.
These plants are drought tolerant. Water only when the kokedama is light and dry. Over watering causes the roots to rot and it is fairly hard for the plant to recover.
Water every 2 -3 weeks in the warmer months (in summer check weekly especially in warmer days and may need watering weekly) and monthly in winter.
HOW TO WATER?
Submerge the whole ball in a bowl, bucket or sink up to the top of the ball. While it is light and dry, you may need to hold it down until the bubbles disappear. Then let it sit in water for 15 minutes. Take it out of the water and let drip dry.
FERTILISER, PLANT FOOD, SOIL CONDITIONER
Fertilise monthly in spring and summer to encourage growth and NONE in winter. In the colder months, this plant generally hibernates. Therefore feeding with fertiliser won’t make it do much.
We use Munash organics with our plants and kokedamas as their products are gentle to the plants, plus they are ORGANIC! With the plant food, every 2 months is all you need to do.
Soil conditioners such as Seasol, is also good to use during the growth season. Therefore, using it fortnightly when you water the plant is also good for it.
These care instructions serve as a guide only. The conditions in every home is different such as light, humidity, draft, heat, etc. and you know your home better than anyone else. These all affect the health and condition of your plant. We advise that you do a little bit of research prior to purchasing them.

*There may be slight inconsistencies with the size and shape of the plants. The plant in the photo may not be the exact product you get, however, will be similar.
