Oplismenus hirtellus variegatus - 'Basket Grass'
Light conditions: This plant prefers bright indirect light, rotate periodically to keep its shape. For more pronounced variegation, keep in a brighter area.
Watering: Allow the top two-three inches of the soil to dry out between waterings. Be careful not to let the soil fully dry, as these plants have delicate root systems that do not store water well.
Humidity: High humidity is ideal, but regular household levels are generally adequate.
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.
Pets: Toxic if ingested, (insoluble calcium oxalates)
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. We know we certainly wouldn't look our best 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.
Sizing: 8" Hanging Basket
