Cryptanthus - Pink - 'Earth Star'
Light conditions: This plant prefers bright indirect to medium light, rotate periodically to keep its shape. If you notice sun bleaching move the plant to a lower light area.
Watering: Allow only the top inch of the soil to dry out between waterings. Cryptanthus dwell on rainforest floors where the soil tends to remain consistently damp. Be careful of over-watering.
Humidity: High humidity is ideal, however, they can typically do well at average household level.
Ideal Temperature: Prefers warmer conditions. Keep away from drafty windows, heat vents or air conditioners and maintain a room temperature of 16C+.
Soil/Nutrients: Regular tropical soil mix. Although fertilizer is not necessary for plants with sufficient soil minerals. You can help enhance growth and overall plant health by using fertilizer during active growing times. Aim to repot during active growing times.
Good to know: Plants that have just been shipped will be stressed, they may not look as beautiful as the picture and will need time to bounce back. How would you look after being in a dark box for a few days? Most plants will need a good drink, place in medium light and increase after a few days if needed. Do not repot for at least two weeks to avoid stressing plants out further.
