Although a bamboo palm grows faster in bright indirect light, it still does well in medium light and even low light if you’re careful not to over-water.
Allow the top 1/3 of the soil of a bamboo palm to dry out before watering. These plants like barely moist but never soggy soil. Never allow a bamboo palm to sit in the excess water that drains from the pot. Do not use water that has passed through a softener because the high salt content damages the leaves. Leaf tips look pale in color and green leaves fall off an over-watered bamboo palm. New growth and leaf tips turn brown when a bamboo palm is under-watered. The confusing thing is that yellow leaves can develop when the plant is over or under- watered, so you need to check the soil as far down as you can to know if the plant needs water.

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.
water the plant deeply and then allow the soil to drain thoroughly. Allow the top 2 inches of potting mixture to dry before the next watering. Dracaena “Rikki” benefits from a monthly feeding during spring and summer, using a standard liquid fertilizer for indoor plants. No fertilizer is advised during fall and winter
Ficus microcarpa is native in the range from Sri Lanka to India, Taiwan, the Malay Archipelago, the Ryukyu Islands, Australia, and New Caledonia. It is a rapidly-growing, rounded, broad-headed, evergreen shrub or tree that can reach 15m (49 feet) or more in height with an equal spread. The smooth, light grey trunk is quite striking, can grow to around 1m (3.3 feet) in diameter, and it firmly supports the massively spreading canopy.
The glossy, dark green, leathery leaves are densely clothed on large, somewhat weeping branches. New growth, produced all year long, is a light rose to chartreuse color, giving the tree a lovely two-toned effect.
Like most houseplants, they also appreciate abundant humidity. You can boost humidity for your croton by growing it in a well-lit kitchen or bathroom, placing a small humidifier nearby, or grouping it nearby other houseplants.
Fertilize croton in spring and summer to keep it healthy and growing. Crotons only need fertilizer once or twice during the season, but you can get them to grow faster by fertilizing more frequently. Follow the directions on the fertilizer package whenever feeding your plants.
