UNPACKING YOUR ORDER

  • Place your plants in a cool place or shaded area indoors and away from direct sunlight or wind.
  • Check your plants to determine if they need water. If plants are dry, water them thoroughly, giving them enough so the entire root mass is wet and water is draining out of the pots. Plants dry out quickly in small pots, especially if exposed to heat.
  • Remember a strong healthy root system is the most important part of your plant. It is normal for some leaves to turn yellow and drop or break during shipment. The healthy root system will promote new growth.

Re-potting

  • Wait at least two weeks if you would like to re-pot your new plants. The plants need to become adjusted to their new environment before adding extra stress. Only move them to one pot size larger than what they are growing in.
  • Use a loose well drained potting mix for your new plants.

WHAT NOT TO DO WHEN YOUR ORDER ARRIVES

  • Do not fertilize your plant for 2 to 3 weeks after receiving it. The plant may be in shock after its journey and growth slowed. Added fertilizer could potentially damage.
  • Do not use veggie mixes for your indoor plants. The mix is too rich for house plants that will burn the root system potentially.
  • Do not plant your new plant in a container without a drain hole. The excess water is a good way for rot to take over.
