Trio Starter Kit

11 items

shipped without nursery pot

The Baby PLNTS Starter Kit will get you all set for the ultimate plant parent experience. It contains everything you need to help three baby plants to grow into happy, healthy houseplants. Your first baby plant is ctenanthe burle marxii, a relative of the calathea which is native to Central and South America. It is is “nyctinastic” which means that it closes up its leaves when it goes to sleep at night. During the day you can enjoy the beautiful striped top of the leaf and when it gets dark it will reveal its beautiful purple underside. Your second baby plant is platycerium alcicorne, a fern with leaves that resemble deer antlers, hence its nickname ‘stag-horn fern’. Unlike most other ferns this little cutie loves light, perhaps because of its roots in sunny Australia! There are soft downy hairs on the leaves of the platycerium alcicorne, which means that it retains moisture very well and will dry out less quickly, making it an ideal hardy little houseplant. The third baby plant is the pilea peperomioides, known as the Chinese penny plant or the pancake plant. This sweetheart originally comes from China and is a distant descendant of the nettle. It’s very popular with plant parents because in addition to its air-purifying abilities it also settles in and multiplies quickly, so before you know it you will have even more family expansion! We can well imagine that you can’t wait to take care of these baby plants! The starter package contains three baby plants, three 9cm pots, one litre of potting soil, a bottle of plant food and two water meters.

In the starter kit you will find everything you need to take care of your baby plants. Each plant has their own care tips. The baby ctenanthe burle marxii likes a bright spot but doesn’t like direct sunlight. It likes moist soil but doesn’t like wet feet, so be careful not to overwater it. The baby platycerium alcicorne is a huge fan of of bright sunlight and is happiest when placed on a windowsill or near a window. It also loves moist soil, but you have to be careful because if you pour water directly on the leaves their white downy layer will disappear, making the plant vulnerable. To avoid this, give a little water twice a week but pour it directly onto the soil under the leaves. The pilea peperomioides is famously easygoing- a splash of water once a week and some nutrition every two weeks keeps this pancake plant very happy. If you would like to expand the family or fill the pot more you just need to cut the small side shoots and put them in water. When the stalk has sprouted some roots (this will take a few days) you can plant the new plant back in the pot! In the growing season of spring and summer we recommend regularly giving some extra organic PLNTS food to aid growth. Pay attention because before you know it they will outgrow their small pots thanks to your love and it will be time for new ones!
