Spiky tillandsia and sprawling schefflera feature in this jungle bunch. These plants compete for attention beneath the canopy with their contrasting shapes and colours. Included is a random bonus air plant drawn from our collection.
The dimensions below show pot size, width x height.
Schefflera Arboricola 'Nora'-- Dwarf Umbrella Tree (13cm x 12cm)
Light: Bright, indirect sun. Direct light will burn the leaves, but as much light as possible will make this plant happy.
Water: Leave to dry out a little between waterings. Water whenever the top two inches of soil feel dry, and let drain.
Calathea Zebrina -- Zebra Plant (13.5cm x 12cm)
Light: Diffused or dappled light -- behind a transluscent curtain or east/west facing frosted glass window
Water: Keep soil damp at all times, but do not allow the plant to sit in water or in very wet soil. Think little and often as a watering policy.
Humidity: High humidity levels are a must. Stand on a wet pebble tray to improve humidity and mist frequently. Good in a shower room.
Tilandsia -- Air plant (11.5cm x 11cm)
Light: Air plants grow underneath the jungle canopy in the wild, so pick a spot out of direct sunlight.
Water: For the potted tillandsia, water weekly-- it's okay to dry out in between waterings. Make sure to get some water into the central resevoir.
For freestanding tillandsia air plants without a pot, soak it in a bowl of water once a week for a few hours, and then gently shake off or towel up any water droplets before replacing it in its spot.
Vriesea 'Vision' (hybrid cultivar)-- "Joshua's Vision" Bromeliad (12.5cm width x 11cm height)
Light: Bright, but not direct light
Water: Pour water gently into the central cup, which should always be about a quarter full. The cup acts as a resevoir, and the bromeliad will drink the water gradually.
Humidity: They like a steamy environment. Bathrooms are ideal, but other rooms are ok as long as they get a misting every few days.
