Expert Tip

Frequent repotting is highly discouraged as the L. chinensis does not like its roots to be disturbed. Repot in spring only when it becomes severely pot bound. The plant grows slowly, repotting may not be necessary for 3-5 years.
Care & Size Guidance

Care & Size Guidance

Allow the soil to dry slightly between waterings. Water less in winter and check that the top 3 inches are dry to the touch. We suggest using filtered, distilled or rain water to avoid chemicals in the tap water.

Most indoor plants like a steady diet of liquid plant food, but not palms. Palms are slow-growing, especially indoors, and don’t need much fertiliser.

Expert Tip

Avoid watering at the base of the trunk as this may lead to rot.
Brown Leaf Tips

Brown Leaf Tips

Most of the time, the indoor plants will develop brown tips because of stress factors in the environment:

low moisture in the air – mist the plant every other day or place on a tray with pebbles that is always topped up with water. Alternatively, a cool-mist humidifier can help.

dry soil – do not allow the soil to dry completely

salts accumulating in the soil – tap water is most of the time very hard and deposits of limescale can form on the roots. use filtered, distilled or rain water
