Foliage plants make great companions and are a breath of fresh air in the home - quite literally! They increase the amount of oxygen in a room by filtering out pollutants. Our collection of trendy green plants is ideal for interior decorating and can transform the look and atmosphere of any room as much as a piece of furniture. They're all very easy to look after and will continue to grow for many years.
There are two size options: Medium plants are grown in 12cm pots and measure up to 45cm Large plants are grown in 17cm pots and measure up to 60cm
Each collection comprises three named varieties selected at random from the following:
Dracaena Fragrans (Corn Plant) - Very popular for its shiny, handsome leaves. Reasonable humidity is required to prevent blemishes, misting is a good way to achieve this as well as helping to keep the leaves dust-free. Regular feeding during spring and summer is recommended. Water well and then wait for the top inch of the compost to dry out before watering again. For best performance position in light shade or gentle, filtered sunlight. Dracaena Marginata (Madagascar Dragon Tree) - Quite slow growing, the green leaves have a narrow red-purple edge. Reasonable humidity is required with regular feeding in spring and summer. Keep the compost moist at all times (but never soggy). Light shade is best. Chamaedorea Palm (Parlour Palm) - Beautiful, attractive and delicate light green fronds, it is a slow grower. Water well then wait until the surface of the compost has dried out, at which point water well again. Use a general feed once every couple of months. Low light will be tolerated, but the perfect spot would be a bright position with a little sun during part of the day. Ficus Elastic (Rubber Plant) - A popular ornamental plant with shiny leather-type leaves. Water well then wait until the surface of the compost has dried out, at which point water well again. Use a weak feed every couple of waterings during spring and summer. A tough plant perfect for a well-lit spot with some indirect sun. Dieffenbachia (Dumb Cane) - Beautiful foliage displays on this versatile houseplant. Water well then wait until the surface of the soil has dried out, at which point water well again. Feed in the growing season at half strength every month or so. Position in indirect bright light. Codiaeum (Croton) - The waxy leaves are spectacular and unique. Compost needs to be evenly moist for the majority of the time during growing (warmer) months. Feed once a month or so at normal strength. Provide good bright light but avoid really hot direct sunlight.
