Want to keep your plants pretty? Here's some tips and instructions from our plant experts to care for your BloomThis plants.
Keeping your plant alive and happy isn't impossible, it just takes love, care and patience.
1. Place in a bright area
Place your plant in a bright but shaded room or area. Avoid direct sunlight and extreme heat as it may make your plant wilt. If you're placing your plant beside a window, turn your pot around to ensure even light coverage to all areas of the plant.
2. Water just enough
Feel the soil of your plant, near the edge of the pot. If it feels dry and/or your plant's leaves are browning and shrivelling up, it's time to water your plant. Water your plant with clean tap water until water begins to run out of the hole at the bottom of the pot and the soil feels damp and soft. Remember to water only the soil and avoid 'watering' the plant or it's leaves.
3. Fertilise when needed
As a general guide, you can fertilise your plants once a month or when your plant is flowering or growing. Instead of using industrial fertilisers, you can use used coffee power as a substitute.
4. Keep pets & babies away
If you have a pet and/or babies, be cautious about the type of plant you purchase. Certain plants may cause allergic reactions that may be fatal. For more info on your particular plant, you can learn more on its product page by visiting our Plant Collection or searching for your plant with the search function on our website.
5. Learn about your plant
