Watering

Approximately 0.25 liter of water once every 2 weeks in spring and summer, every month in winter.

Care Guide

For watering, use water at room temperature and whose chlorine has evaporated. Let the soil dry between 2 waterings. Remove the decorative moss beforehand to avoid wetting it. Water in 2 times, spaced about 10 minutes apart, so that the soil absorbs the water well. Clean the foliage once a month with a soft cloth and diluted black soap. Rotate the pot a quarter circle at this time to promote smooth growth. Apply suitable fertilizer once a month from March to September.

What is the moisture meter and how does it work?

All large and extra large plant sets will include a sleek, innovative moisture meter that will tell you when it’s time to water. 

This moisture meter does not require batteries and uses a simple color scale: blue = no need to water, white = time to water. To use, gently insert as deep as possible into your plant’s soil, taking care not to damage any roots. Wait 20-30 minutes to read. If the window is completely white, water your plant as instructed on your care card. If the window is blue, hold off on watering until it turns completely white. Wait a couple of days before watering, the moisture meter should not be constantly bright blue.

After 9 months it will be time to replace the moister meter stick.

Please note that Léon & George does not take responsibility for damage caused by incorrect or forceful use of the moisture meter. 

Will the plant I receive be exactly like the one in the photo on your site?

Of course, no two plants look the same. Although we do our best to offer you a plant that looks as much as possible as the photos, there will always be variations, which is what makes each plant unique!

What is the 30-day plant guarantee all about?

We want to ensure that everyone has a successful experience with their plants. Our plants are all easy to care for and come with our care instructions to guide you in their care. Even so, if your plant dies within the first 30 days of receipt, we will replace it!

All you have to do is contact us!
