How to care for your Cryptanthus

LIGHT: Medium to bright indirect sunlight. Avoid direct sun.

WATERING: Likes to be slightly moist at all times. Avoid waterlogging but also do not allow to dry out completely.

HUMIDITY: Enjoys humidity but will tolerate average home environments. Avoid drying heat or cold draughts. Humidity can be increased by pebble trays, grouping with other plants or a humidifier. Ideal terrarium plant.

TEMPERATURE: Enjoys warmth of 15-28°C. Avoid draughts.

FEEDING: Does not require much feeding. Use half strength liquid feed every 3-4 weeks in spring and summer, less in autumn and winter – and only if plants continue to actively grow.

GROWTH: Compact growth. Can reach up to 15+ cm in height.

TOXICITY: Safe for pets and people.

OTHER: Pups will develop and can be broken off to give new plants.
