How The Wax Plant Makes You Happy:

  • With¬†simple care needs, the Wax Plant is an exceptional choice for newbie plant parents and to help you build your confidence with indoor plants.
  • As it matures with the right care, it will delight you with¬†long vines of slender thick waxy leaves.
  • It¬†purifies the air around it¬†creating a healthier and happier environment for you.
  • With exceptional care, the Wax Plant can put out creamy white and pink flowers. This will surely delight the successful indoor plant parent!

Where The Wax Plant is Happiest:

  • Hailing from a tropical environment, the¬†Wax Plant¬†can be grown in¬†moderate to bright light,¬†avoiding direct sunlight.
  • The variegated variety will be happiest and will show off its amazing colours best in bright indirect light.
  • Normal room humidity is sufficient.

Watering The Wax Plant:

  • Water well¬†about once a week, pouring until the water drains right down into the pot and out of the drainage holes at the bottom.
  • Allow the soil to dry out before watering again.
  • The Wax Plant enjoys a very well draining soil.

Feeding The Wax Plant:

  • Fertilise your¬†Wax Plant¬†once¬†every two weeks¬†with a¬†liquid plant food.

Care Tips:

  • The Wax Plant¬†has a¬†natural vining tendency,¬†and will need space to grow as it matures. This plant pairs exceptionally well with a¬†macrame¬†or hanging basket.
  • The Wax Plant can put out creamy white and pink flowers. These plants bloom best when root bound, so only repot every 2-3 years when the roots have grown out of the drainage holes at the bottom of the pot.
  • You can prune your Wax Plant in Spring if you would prefer to keep it compact.
