How to water:
1. After receiving a plant wait for 1 week before watering.
2. First 3 months water your plant as you normally would from the top, through the soil. Add 2 quarts (8 cups) of water on average once every 3-4 weeks. Spread water evenly around the plant. Be sure to let the soil become very dry before watering again.
This period is important for roots development. During this time plant is adapting to its new environment after being moved from the green house and repotted.
3. After 3 months start using planter’s water supply shaft to water your plant.
4. Pour 2 quarts (8 cups) of water in the pot, using the water supply shaft. Be sure to let the soil become very dry before watering again.
5. After water indicator shows low water supply wait for 3-4 weeks and then add 2 quarts (8 cups) of water again. Be sure to let the soil become very dry before watering again.
6. Once in a while water your plant as you normally would, pouring water from the top through the soil. It is good for a plant to have water running through it’s roots.
7. Always check top 2″ of soil before watering. Stick your finger about an inch into the soil and if it feels dry add water, if top soil feels moist wait for few more days before watering.
Wipe leaves regularly with a damp cloth to remove dust.
Once a month spring through summer with general house plant fertilizer diluted by half.
