Tips on how to grow your plant successfully:

Light: Best grown in bright indirect light.

Potting: Alsobia punctata grows well in containers. We recommend a good quality African Violet potting mix. Re-potting of plants and new plantlets is best done in spring, the beginning of the growing period.

Watering: Always water the plant thoroughly and allow the plant to drain, then allow the plant to begin drying out before watering again. Your plant should never stand in a drip tray with water after watering for any length of time. It is always best to pour this water off. Frequency of watering is always the most difficult cultural point to advise on as there are so many variables which influence it. When in doubt as to whether to water or not it is probably best to rather let the plant dry for another day or two and then water it as over-watering can kill your plant very quickly.

Temperature: Alsobia punctata is best grown in a warm indoor environment or similar sheltered outdoor environment. A sheltered patio for example.

Fertiliser: Alsobia punctata will benefit from applications of a balanced water-soluble fertiliser during spring and summer. Always use a very dilute solution of ¼ to ½ of the recommended dilution rate.

Please Note:

The plant is currently growing in a 10 cm plastic pot. Although our plants are grown under the same conditions and we carefully handpick your plant to ensure the best quality possible, no two plants are identical. The colours of plants can also vary according to the season. The plant supplied will be similar to the plant photographed.
