This is one of the favourite indoor plants around! It is also known as the fruit salad plant in reference to its fruit, which tastes similar to a fruit salad. Its leaves when young are small and with no fenestration, which is what we have in stock for these pots. However, when it matures, it will develop the fenestration or holes which is most famous for.
12 x 12 x 12.5 cms
Place in bright indirect light. Direct sunlight can damage the leaves by burning them.
These plants are drought tolerant. Water only when the the top inch of the soil is dry to touch. Overwatering 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.
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.
