Amydrium - Care
The Amydrium is part of the massic Araceae family. This family is known for their fluorescence that is called Spadix, so if you show much tender, love and care towards your Amydrium, she might reward you with one of those flowers! The Amydrium is a climbing plant, with fenestrated leaves. She has a very unique look to her leaves and is easy going within her maintenance. A really nice addition to your PLNTS collection!
Amydrium Plant Care Tips
The Amydrium is an aroid, which means that you can provide her with a special aroid potting mix to make her comfortable. Aroids prefer a mix of 60% soil, 15% bark, 10% coconut fibre, 10% charcoal and 5% perlite. A climbing tool is highly recommended for this fenestrated stunner, since she will be able to grow up right and produce bigger leaves. You can go with the trusty moss pole, but can also make her more charming with a plant stake or chain.
Light and placement for Amydrium
The Amydrium will thrive in bright, indirect light. But if you can’t provide her with this amount of light, she will also tolerate lower light conditions. Just keep in mind that that isn’t her optimal growing condition, so she might be a little bit less of a bewildering version, but will still be stunning.
You can water your Amydrium whenever the top layer of the soil has dried out. We always recommend being mindful about the amount of water that you provide your plant with. It is better to give less water, more frequently, than too much water at once.
During the growing season, your Amydrium would like to reach for the skies. This means she can grow quite a bit, which makes her hungry. You can give her all the necessary nutrients, by adding our liquid PLNTS nutrition to your water once a month.
You can propagate your Amydrium by stem cutting. Make a cutting with 1-2 leaves and cut underneath a node. After cutting you can either place it in water, in a substrate or in soil. Roots will appear around the node and there you have a brand new Amydrium.
Most common pests on Amydrium
Keep your eyes out for aphids, mealybugs, spider mites and thrips. We advise you to have a little plant inspection now and then to make sure there are no infestations with any itchy creature.
