Care Tip: As Streptocarpus are suseptible to root rot, consider water from the bottom (wick watering), making sure the temperature of the room isn't too hot, and not putting the plant directly into the water.

It is important not to overwater these plants. Please make sure the soil is dry before providing more water, whether you choose to water from above or below.

Pot Sizes Explained

Your plant will be delivered in a 13cm nursery pot. When ordering a plant for a decorative plant pot, please ensure the nursery pot is a couple of centimeters smaller that the decorative pot.

Unpacking Your Plant

When your plant is packed, the growers will ensure the plant is packed tightly to ensure they are protected during transit. Open the outer packing and you may find that some stems, vines or leaves need to be unfurled. Don't rush, transporting plants can be a little stressful for them so slowly tease apart over the coming days. Some loss of leaves is unavoidable, however all of our plants are sent in top health so will recover and regenerate accordingly with their species.
