Majesty Palm Care 

Place in a full shaded area only.  Allow top inch of potting mix to dry between watering.  If you keep it in its container, use organic fertilizer quarterly.  They also make great indoor plants.



Ficus (Weeping Fig) Care 

Place in a partially shaded area.  Allow top inch of potting mix to dry between watering.  If you keep it in its container, use organic fertilizer quarterly.  They also make good indoor plants.



Jatropha Care 

Place in an area providing full to partial sun.  Allow top inch of potting mix to dry between watering.  If you keep it in its container, use organic fertilizer quarterly.  They bloom all year and make a nice patio tree.


Bromeliad and Epiphyte Log Care 

Place in bright, filtered sunlight, but avoid placing in direct sun.  Bromeliads are tropical plants and enjoy warmth and humidity.  Water weekly by filling the "cup" on the Bromeliad rosette with water.  If you're unsure about watering, feel the base of the bromeliad where it is attached to the log.  If it is moist, you will not need to water, but if it's dry, you should water it.  The other
air plants will not need water - just an occasional light mist.
Once the bromeliad blooms, you'll notice that offset plants will begin to grow at the base of the mature plants.


Xanadu Philodendron Care 

Place in a partially shaded to shaded area.  It can withstand sun, but it does best in partial to full shade.  Allow top inch of potting mix to dry between watering.  If you keep it in its container, use organic fertilizer quarterly during growing season (spring to fall).  They also make good indoor and patio plants.


Purple Fountain Hanging Basket Care 

Place in an area providing full sun to partial shade.  Keep the plant moderately moist by watering when it feels as if the top inch of the soil is dry.  Use ½ strength liquid fertilizer every two weeks.
