Radiator plant

 
 

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

Radiator plants have beautiful leaves and require little light to grow. Their compact size and love of moisture make them a perfect match for your CUP O FLORA pot.

Care instructions

Light: lots to medium 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.
