Congratulations for purchasing a CUP O FLORA. Let's set you up for success.

Nerve plants are loved for the beauty of their leaves.

Care instructions

Light: lots of natural light but no direct sun.

Watering: fill the outer pot with approximately 2 cm of water and refill when the water runs out. Don't worry if you forget to refill for a few days away as this plant enjoys a wet-dry cycle.

What to look out for: If placed by a window, the leaves will angle toward the light. You can keep the plant looking more centred by rotating the pot every week.

Re-potting: Buy a new pot from your nearest retailer or order a pot here (consider a larger vessel to give the plant room to grow).

Insert the wick into the new pot and fill a third of the insert with soil. 

Extract the overgrown plant with the soil and use your fingers to split the main plant from the pups.Rinse the old insert and position the pups.

Cover the roots with more soil. Compact the soil and eliminate air pockets by gently tapping the insert on the table (use a cloth to ensure the glass is not damaged). Repeat the same method for the main plant.

Sad plant indicators

Leaves turning brown: The plant loves the warmer weather and slows down in the winter months. Keep your plant happy by ensuring it has a warm environment and lots of natural light.
