Plant & care

 

Aloe vera

 

• Good light, but no bright sunlight.
• Keep damp, compost must not dry out.
• Keep plant slightly dry in winter.
• Fertiliser not necessary.
• Can be placed outside in summer.
• The plant is purely decorative and not suitable for consumption.

 

Amaryllis

 

During the growth process of the flowerbud, moderate watering is enough. Once a week
in little bits will be sufficient to keep the soil from drying out completely. If Amaryllis gets too
much water in this stage, its stems will grow larger and larger until they kink. After the flowers have
opened, you can give some extra water in order to keep the flowers from drooping.
Room temperature is fine. Unlike most other plants, Amaryllis can be kept close to or even just above
the radiators of your central heating. It will need a little extra water though!

Anthurium

 

• Anthuriums are very easy to care for.
• The plant needs a light position, but not in direct sunlight.
• A room temperature of 18-22 °C is fine – the plant may not get too cold.
• Water the plant regularly, ensuring that the water is not too cold. The soil should not be allowed to dry out, but too much water is not good either.
• The plant likes it if you regularly spray the leaves with tepid water.
• Plant food will ensure that the plant continues to flower profusely for a long time and continues to produces new buds. Feed the plant once every three weeks, in the correct concentration as specified on the packaging.
• It is a good idea to remove spent flowers.
• To keep the plant flowering for a number of years, it must have a rest period during the winter. Place the plant in a light spot at a temperature of 15 °C for around six weeks, after which it will reward you with profuse flowering.
• In the summer when the temperature no longer falls below 12 °C the plant can also be placed in the garden or on the patio.
• Anthurium will continue to thrive for between 4 and 26 weeks (depending on country of sale, shipping and storage time, ripeness, freshness, the provision of plant food and conditions at the consumer).

Cyclamen

 

The Cyclamen comes from the cool mountainous regions around the Mediterranean and belongs to the Primulaceae family.
The plant needs to be kept at a temperature of approximately ± 20 ºC all year round. Place the Cyclamen in a cool light spot but avoid placing it in direct sunlight.
The plant will die off rapidly if kept in a spot that is too sunny or too warm. Ideally the plant should be watered with luke warm softened water and the water
should be poured into the drip tray or the outer pot. Leave the plant to stand for about 30 minutes and then remove any surplus water to prevent the roots from rotting.
If the potting compost is very dry submerge the potting compost in water. Feed the plant every two weeks during the growing period then reduce the amount
of plant food while the plant is flowering. To keep the plant in good condition make a point of removing any flowers that have wilted and any dead leaves;
wilted flowers and dead leaves should be broken off rather than cut off to prevent rotting. If the plant is properly cared for it will go on flowering for several months.
Repotting is best done in the autumn. In this case give the plant somewhat more water and place it in a somewhat warmer spot.
The best tips for caring for your plant:
• Good light, but no bright sunlight.
• Ideal temperature 16 – 20 ºC.
• Keep damp, compost must not dry out.
• Do not leave excess water in saucer/dish.
• Apply fertiliser twice a month in winter.
• Remove dead heads of flowers.
• Remove dead foliage.
• The plant is purely decorative and not suitable for consumption.

 

Cyperus

 

 

Location:The Pure Collection® Cyperus Zumula grows naturally in light and sunny spots. Be careful, though, with immediate light from the sun, for a grass easily dries out. Make sure your cat has access to it.

Water and nutrition: Your cat grass cannot have enough water. You can water it three or four times a week. It grows best with a high humidity of the air around it. To meet these wishes, you can spray water on its leaves every now and then.

Temperature: Cat grass likes average room temperatures of above 18 degrees Celsius. It cannot withstand the cold, and neither can it withstand extreme warmth, which puts it in danger by drying it out too much.
The plant is purely decorative and not suitable for consumption.

 

Dendrobium

 

  • Dendrobium Nobile tolerates a lot of light, but never place it in direct sunlight in the spring and summer. This plant prefers a cool, airy environment. The ideal temperature is between 15 and 20ºC.
  • Just like other orchids, the Dendrobium Nobile may not be left too wet, but certainly also not dry. Watering every five days in summer is sufficient, while once every seven days is fine in winter.
  • The best way of watering it is to immerse the plant in tepid tap water. Let the plant stand for a while in the water and then let it drip well.
  • When in full bloom, the Nobile requires special orchid nutrients once every two weeks. You can halve the quantity in winter. They are soluble in water.
  • Once the flower stem has finished blooming, the flowers will fall off of their own accord. Place the Dendrobium Nobile in a light place where the temperature in winter is between 10 and 15ºC.
  • Simply water the Dendrobium Nobile as usual in this period, in other words don’t let it dry out. From a new shoot the orchid will again produce new flowers. As a rule this takes between eight and twelve months.
  • The Dendrobium Nobile does not flourish well in an over-large pot, and can even remain in the same pot for two to three years. Re-potting is thus only necessary if the Dendrobium Nobile really doesn’t fit in the original pot any longer.

 

Euphorbia Trigona

 

• Good light, but no bright sunlight.
• Keep damp, compost must not dry out.

Ficus

Ideally the plant should be kept at a temperature of approximately 18 ºC all year round. Keep the Ficus in a constant
environment with plenty of light all year round but avoid placing it in direct sunlight. There also needs to be high
atmospheric humidity. Insufficient light, too much draught or a sudden change in temperature can cause yellowing and
leaf loss. Give the Ficus plenty of water but take care to prevent saturation and do not allow a clod of dry earth to
accumulate around the roots since both cause the plant to shed its leaves. Feed the plant with normal plant food while
the new leaves are growing. To keep the plant in good condition spray the leaves regularly to remove any dust.
It is a good idea to replace the potting compost on an annual basis. The plant itself only needs to be repotted
once every two or three years.

Phalaenopsis

• Phalaenopsis grows best at a normal room temperature of 18-22 ºC.
• The plant needs to stand in a light spot. In the winter months the plant can tolerate direct sunlight. In the spring and summer the sun is too bright.
• The plant does not need a great deal of water: watering once a week is sufficient. Too much water can be damaging.
• Plant food or special orchid food will ensure that all the buds open and the plant continues to flower for a long time.
• After flowering cut the stem above the second node. The node is a thickening of the stem and is easily identified. After a while, a new branch will develop from the node. A new bud grows under each leaf, which will also flower. After flowering it is advisable to cut this branch above the second node as well. This will ensure that the plant continues to flower.
• If the plant cannot be encouraged to flower again, the plant should be placed in a somewhat cooler, light room (15-16 degrees Celsius) for a few months in order to encourage bud formation.  The plant will respond as if it is dying, and grows a bud in order to ensure a subsequent generation. During this cold period the plant needs little water. When a new shoot forms, the plant can be put back in the warm room.
• Phalaenopsis will continue to thrive for between 4 and 26 weeks (depending on country of sale, shipping and storage time, ripeness, freshness, the provision of plant food or orchid food and conditions at the consumer).
