This striking houseplant is dark and mysterious, and rare. The glossy leaves are so deeply purple that they appear to be ebony. We are so in awe of this mysterious houseplant that our team loves to call it 'Jaw Dropper'. There are a few basic requirements to keep in mind when you own this phenomenal houseplant. Keep the humidity high, give it bright indirect light, and do not let the soil ever dry out completely in between waterings.
Plant Diameter: 6"
Light: If you do not have a lot of bright light in your space, then Geogenanthus Ciliatus will be right at home. These houseplants are understory dwellers making them true low light plants. They prefer areas that are dimly lit so be sure to keep them away from direct sunlight as this will cause their leaves to scorch.
Water: Damp soil is ideal for growing Geogenanthus. These are plants that certainly love lots of water and finding the right balance can be hard for first timers. Let the top inch of soil dry out before watering and completely drench the soil when it’s time to water. Keeping the soil consistently moist is very important as these plants will decline quickly if the soil stays dry for any period of time.
Fertilizer: In the spring and summer, feed the plant using a complete liquid fertilizer or fish or seaweed emulsion that is diluted to 1/2 the recommended strength once or twice a month. Do not fertilize the plant when it is not actively growing. Over fertilizing can cause more harm than good.
