Looking After Me
These young plants generally thrive in medium to bright indirect light. In the summer months, they should avoid long days of hot direct sun, as they can get sunburnt just like humans.
During the warm seasons, water lightly every 1-2 weeks, allowing soil to dry out between waterings. And feed with fertiliser (provided) monthly.
During colder months when the plants slow down, allow the soil to dry so the plants' roots can breathe.
In general, houseplants like normal-to-cool room temperature and humidity and should be kept away from dry air (like around a freezing window).
Why grow when you can buy, I hear you ask?
Watching plants grow is a joy. Observing how they adapt to to their environment and respond to the seasons helps us build our appreciation for nature. Our young-uns may be small to start, but with patience and a little TLC, they'll develop into healthy adult house plants.
Plus... you'll get 3 plants for the average price of 1 adult houseplant!
Do I need to be a seasoned gardener to grow young houseplants?
Not at all - that's why we've chosen them. These plants have already developed a mature root system - they just need light, water and feeding every once in a while.
Where can I grow them?
Our homes create similar environments to the warm part shaded environments their ancestors came from. So as long as you have somewhere that receives some light and doesn't get too cold, you should be fine.
What are Young Houseplants?
These plants are technically called seedlings, which means their seeds have sprouted, they have developed root systems and now they're just looking for a nice home to thrive.
