Plant Care 

  • Soil: Prefers rich, well-drained soil with good organic content.
  • Watering: Keep soil consistently moist but not waterlogged. Reduce watering during the cooler months.
  • Temperature: Ideal temperatures range between 15°C and 25°C. Tolerant to cooler temperatures but not frost.
  • Light: Thrives in low to moderate light conditions; avoid direct sunlight.
  • Fertilising: Use a balanced, slow-release fertilizer like 14-14-14 every three months during the growing season.
  • Pruning: Minimal pruning needed; just remove dead or yellowing leaves as necessary.
  • Mulching: Not typically required but can be beneficial in retaining soil moisture.
  • Pest Control: Watch for scale and spider mites. Treat with insecticidal soap or appropriate pesticides when needed.
  • Flowering and Fruiting: Rarely flowers or fruits in indoor settings; primarily grown for its foliage.
  • Potting: Suitable for container growing. Choose a container that allows for growth; repot every 2-3 years.
  • Feeding Regime: Consistent feeding with a balanced fertilizer supports healthy foliage development.

We ship our plants and garden supplies throughout New Zealand. Due to the increased costs of shipping and packaging, we now apply a minimal delivery charge. After offering free shipping for three consecutive years, we find it necessary to adjust this policy to align with current market conditions. However, we have lowered our prices to help offset this change.

Please note, we do not ship plants or garden supplies internationally from New Zealand. We do export plants and tissue culture materials from our overseas nursery, which requires a minimum order. Please contact us at to discuss your specific requirements.

Additional Delivery Information

  • We dispatch our plants year-round, as most are shipped with soil. During the winter months, we closely monitor weather conditions and may temporarily delay shipments if the weather is particularly severe. Our packing process includes adding insulation when necessary to protect the plants against temperature extremes.
  • In summer, we ensure that plants are thoroughly watered before they leave our nursery. Occasionally, we may need to ship plants bare-rooted, particularly when they cannot be comfortably re-potted into smaller packaging for shipping. We will always discuss this with you in advance if your plant needs to be shipped in this manner.
  • It's important to note that shipping can be a stressful experience for plants, often due to spending several days in a dark, confined space. While most plants withstand this with little to no stress, some may experience leaf drop. However, they generally recover quickly with some additional care, including proper watering and gradual reintroduction to light after arrival.
