Description for Ficus Starlight. Ficus is a pan-tropical genus of trees, shrubs and vines occupying a wide variety of ecological niches; most are evergreen, but some deciduous species are endemic to areas outside of the tropics and to higher elevations.
Under glass grow in loam-based potting compost with added fine bark chippings in full or filtered light. When in growth water moderately and apply a nitrogen rich fertiliser monthly. Keep just moist in winter. Plants benefit from regular misting and from being stood on a pebble tray, particularly in a warm dry atmosphere. Their main requirement is an even temperature, in winter not below 13°C and without the sharp fluctuations found in so many houses. Avoid draughty situations and keep them away from heater fumes
Cacti are great plants for busy people who want something to sit on a sunny windowsill, but don’t want to spend too much time looking after them.This beautifully rounded, glossy green cactus has distinct deep ribs running down the plant, with clutches of golden yellow radial spines protruding out. Native to Mexico this cactus in it’s natural habitat can grow to a large plant with funnel shaped yellow flowers from mid-summer but over here it is unlikely to flower, and really it is an attactive plant just as it is. Please note that the pot in the photograph is not supplied with the plant (which is sent out in a black plastic pot). They do however make excellent potted plants, and if you wish to pot yours up, we do have a wide range of pots on our website to choose from.
This widely used genus is prized for its evergreen foliage and its ability to withstand heavy pruning. The yellow-green flowers are insignificant. Buxus has been used in hedging, topiaries, and parterres for centuries.
Noteworthy CharacteristicsOpposite, glossy rounded to lance-shaped leathery leaves. Variegated forms exist.
CareGrow in any soil, preferably in part shade. Tolerates full sun if the soil is moist. Prune in late spring and summer; supply fertilizer after any heavy pruning to aid in regeneration.
PropagationRoot semi-ripe cutttings in summer. Graft in winter.
The Tillandsia Bulbosa is also one of the easiest air plants to care for. It does not require any soakings, only mistings 2-3 times a week, more often in hot and dry conditions like that of in the desert. In the summer months, when it is a bit warmer, the Bulbosa can grow quite rapidly.
It also does extremely well in low light conditions as well as that of bright diffused or indirect light
The Tillandsia Bulbosa is native to Guatemala, Belize and Central America.
Perfectly paired with Himmeli: The DimonThed and The Heart, and with all of the Wall Sconces.
These plants are considered poisonous and should be kept away from pets and children. Read more about common houseplants that are poisonous in Don’t Feed Me To Your Cat! A Guide to Poisonous Houseplants
The name “Spanish moss” actually originated as “Spanish beard”. Native American tribal people called it “itla-okla”, which meant “tree hair”. Some French thought that it resembled a conquistador’s long beard and began calling it “Barbe Espagnol”, or Spanish beard. While the Spaniards retaliated by referring to it as “Cabello Frances”, or French Hair, it never caught on.
Over time, Spanish beard became Spanish moss, what it’s most commonly known as today. The Polynesians occasionally refer to Spanish moss as “Kali’s hair”, and throughout its natural environment it’s still called “tree hair”, simply because it resembles hair so much!
he common name burrito sedum refers to Sedum morganianum “Burrito,” a cultivar of sedum also known as burro’s tail and grown for its long, trailing stems and plump, densely packed foliage. It cannot tolerate frost and only survives outdoors above U.S. Department of Agriculture plant hardiness zone 10b, so it is best grown as a houseplant in cooler areas. Despite their frost tenderness, burrito sedums are relatively hardy and thrive with little hands-on care. However, they must be regularly watered during the active growing season and provided with suitable levels of light and warmth to prosper.
Light: The darker green varieties of aglaonema can grow in near shade, while the variegated varieties require brighter light. Do not expose any aglaonema to Direct Sun
Water: Water thoroughly in the summer and mist the plant often to raise the humidity. During the winter, reduce watering but do not let the plant dry out completely.
Temperature: These plants do not like cold drafts or temperatures below 65 F. Be sure to keep them away from drafty windows or vents and the warmer the spot you can find for them, the better.
