Foliage Care Information

Many of the Tropical Foliage plants we grow are indigenous to the Tropics where the plants are accustomed to warm temperatures, indirect sunlight through the canopy of trees above, moderate humidity, regular moisture, and soils rich with decomposed organic matter.

Maintain your plant in moderate light, do not expose to direct sunlight. Aglaonema, Spathiphyllum, and Philodendron Cordatum will tolerate low light levels while Croton prefer brighter light levels. Maintain temperatures between 55F and 90F. Keep plants away from drafts. Water once every 5 to 7 days depending upon the time of year and the ambient temperatures. Keep soil evenly moist but do not overwater. During active growth, you may use a mild liquid fertilizer – a balanced fertilizer with minor elements at half or quarter strength. If light levels are low, full strength will burn the the plants. When re-potting, use a commercial organic potting soil mix.
