Unpack Plants Immediately

- Loose soil on the foliage can easily be removed with a light brushing or watering.
- Any stretched or faded plants will recover when gradually transitioned into brighter light.
- Unwanted leaves can simply be pulled off at any time.
- If pots came in a plastic carrier tray, remove pots from tray within a few days.
- Plants can be planted immediately or left to grow in their original plastic pots up to 2-4 weeks.
Water if Soil is Dry
- Drench from above in the sink or with garden hose.
- Tilt gently to remove droplets from leaves.
- Allow container to drain completely.
Protect from Heavy Rain, Extreme Temperatures, and Full Sun (in Summer)
