How To Grow

Step 1 – Choose a pot at least 300mm wide. Position in a well-lit spot indoors or a sheltered spot, out of the hot afternoon sun in a patio situation. Fill with quality potting mix, such as Yates Premium Potting Mix.
Step 2 – Remove the shrub from the container, gently tease the roots and cut away any circled or tangled roots. Give the foliage a light prune to encourage new shoots.
Step 3 – Position in middle of pot and backfill with potting mix, gently firming down. Water in well.
Step 4 – Water when the potting mix is dry – insert your index finger to the first knuckle, if it’s dry, water and if it’s moist, don’t water.
Step 5 – Feed fortnightly during spring and summer with Yates® Thrive® Houseplant Liquid Plant Food.
