Care Instructions Foliage

Foliage Foliage plant Placement:

Your foliage plants will grow best receiving bright indirect light and temperatures between 60°F and 85°F. Humidity inside houses is usually too low and should be increased by misting around the plants and over the moss two or more times per day. This is especially important if household temperatures exceed 75°.


Watering:

From spring to autumn, the soil should be kept evenly moist with only the top surface of the soil drying between watering, but never allow the soil to dry out completely. Apply water thoroughly until it flows out the drain holes. To prevent the soil from becoming soggy, after watering, pour out any excess water that collects in the plastic liner.


Pruning:

Prune any overly tall or long branches to keep your plants compact and to encourage branching.


Fertilizing:

Apply a general house plant food at half recommended strength every two weeks from March to August. Fertilize only when the soil is moist.


Insect Control:

Pests that may attack foliage plants are spider mites, mealy bug, and aphids. High humidity and frequently washing off the leaves of your plant will discourage insect problems. If insects do become a problem, thoroughly spray your plants, including lower leaf surfaces, with a house plant insecticide, following label directions.
