  • CARE TIPS from the ORGANIC grower

    Tip 1 Mimic the natural environment of the plant as much as possible

    Tip 2 It is better to water too little than too much

    Tip 3 Only give plant food during the growing season


    To optimally care for a plant, it is good to know where the plant originates from. For example the desert. There, after a scarce rain shower, a plant stores water in its stems and roots. This is how he provides himself with water. You can imitate this by placing the plant in a sunny spot, letting the soil dry out and giving it a good splash of water now and then.
