Olive, a cherished classic with its distinctive fruits, remains a timeless favorite for both indoor and outdoor cultivation. A popular choice for various culinary and landscaping purposes.
Epiphyllum species thrive in well-illuminated locations with indirect sunlight; it's recommended to protect them from direct sun exposure.
Highly recommended to allow the top one to two inches of the soil to dry before watering, as Epiphyllum species prefer slightly moist soil and can withstand short periods of dryness. Ensuring proper drainage is essential to prevent root rot.
Epiphyllum species thrive in environments with higher humidity. You can maintain humidity levels by utilizing a humidity tray, a room humidifier, or occasionally misting the leaves with water.
Epiphyllum species thrive in warm conditions, with an ideal temperature range between 65-85°F (18-29°C). To protect your plant from cold damage, it's crucial to avoid exposing it to temperatures below 50°F (10°C).
Common Problems Q&A
Why are my leaf edges browning?
Epiphyllum species thrive in conditions with higher humidity, and insufficient humidity can lead to the browning of leaf edges and reduced vibrancy. You can enhance the humidity around the plant by regularly misting the leaves, placing a tray of water nearby, or using a humidifier.
Why is my Epiphyllum experiencing leggy growth and losing color.
Inadequate light can result in Epiphyllum species developing leggy growth, losing their vibrant appearance, and displaying less-than-ideal development. To encourage their healthy growth, it's recommended to place your Epiphyllum in a spot with bright, indirect light.
