    Plant Care

    Light & Temperature

    • Ideal Range: Most basket plants prefer temperatures between 60-75°F (15-24°C). This range supports growth without causing stress to the plant.
    • Avoid Extremes: Protect the plants from extreme temperature fluctuations. Avoid placing them near heat sources like radiators or in drafty areas where cold air can impact them.
    • Seasonal Adjustments: In winter, ensure the plants are not exposed to cold drafts, and in summer, avoid direct exposure to air conditioning vents.
    • Bright, Indirect Light: Most basket plants flourish in bright, indirect light. Direct sunlight can scorch the leaves, while too little light can slow growth.
    • East or West Windows: Placing your basket plants near east or west-facing windows provides optimal light conditions. If the sunlight is too intense, use sheer curtains to diffuse the light.
    • Artificial Lighting: If natural light is insufficient, especially in winter months, consider using grow lights to supplement the light. LED grow lights are a good option as they are energy-efficient and effective.
    • Rotate Regularly: Rotate the plants every few weeks to ensure all sides receive equal light, promoting even growth.


    • Consistent Moisture: Keep the soil consistently moist but not soggy. Water when the top inch of soil feels dry.
    • Deep Watering: Water thoroughly until excess water drains out of the bottom of the pot.
    • Avoid Overwatering: Ensure the pot has good drainage to prevent root rot. Do not let the plant sit in standing water.
    • Water Quality: Use room temperature, filtered water if possible, to avoid chlorine and fluoride, which can harm the plant.
    • Humidity: Increase humidity by misting the plant regularly or placing a humidity tray nearby.


    • Compost: Apply a thin layer of organic compost to the soil surface in spring to enrich the soil.
    • Worm Castings: Mix worm castings into the potting soil for a nutrient boost.
    • Fish Emulsion: Use a diluted fish emulsion once a month during the growing season.
    • Seaweed Extract: Apply liquid seaweed extract every 6-8 weeks for essential trace minerals.
    • Banana Peels: Chop and bury banana peels in the soil for a natural potassium source.

    General Tips

    • Light: Prefers bright, indirect light. Can tolerate some direct sunlight but avoid intense afternoon sun.
    • Watering: Keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged. Water when the top inch of soil feels dry.
    • Soil: Use well-draining potting soil to prevent root rot.
    • Temperature: Thrives in temperatures between 60-80°F (16-27°C). Protect from cold drafts and frost.
    • Humidity: Prefers high humidity. Mist regularly or place a humidifier nearby if the air is dry.
    • Fertilizing: Feed monthly during the growing season (spring and summer) with a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer.
    • Pruning: Trim back any leggy or overgrown stems to encourage bushier growth and maintain shape.
    • Propagation: Easily propagated from stem cuttings. Place cuttings in water or moist soil to root.
