AFTER PURCHASE - QUICK GUIDE

 

  1. Carefully unpack the plant

  2. Please, check the roots, stems and leaves for any transport damage, remove if necessary. If there is anything you are unhappy about, please contact us as soon as possible.

  3. For the first few weeks keep the plant exclusively in medium we send it with. Changing the medium causes an additional stress to the plant and is not recommended.

  4. The medium you keep your plant in should be very loosely packed in the pot, Very fluffy and allowing for a lot of air circulation

  5. The medium should always be kept just slightly moist and never wet for longer periods of time, this can lead to root rot very quickly.

  6. Make sure that the plant is in an environment with high-air-humidity (ideally over 65%, 70% and higher)

  7. Make sure the plant receives enough light, ideally place it under a good-quality plant light, no direct sunlight

  8. Your plant will have been fertilized shortly  before transport. There is no need to fertilize it again, unless it's a diluted vitamin solution.

  9. Make sure the plant is in a well-ventilated space, even if it is a terrarium or a greenhouse

  10. When you notice fresh root growth on your plant, you can carefully repot it it to your fvourite medium. Our medium can be mixed with any organic or non-organic medium and will provide additional aearation to the roots.

  11. We strongly dicourage from repotting your plant straight after you receive it. Checking the roots carefully is absolutely fine and recommended, but keeping it in the same medium it has been grown in, will save it from going through additional shock. Give it some time to get over the transport.

  12. Be careful not to overwater the plant. Just because it’s been in a box for a few days, does not mean it needs to be watered. Enough light and stable air humidity is more important at this stage.

  13. For more information, please refer to the our PLANT CARE PAGE and/ or to the many, many very informative and valuable LINKS we reccommend.

  14. Don’t be scared, experiment, have fun. Don’t give up. Plants are unbelievably resilient. And rewarding.
