How much light do they need?
Sunlight: Bright and indirect light Modern Sprout Grow Light: med light; 6-8 hours onHow often do I water?
Touch 2” beneath the soil weekly and water if it’s dry. You want the soil to be just damp, around medium-brown in color. Drooping/falling leaves are a sign to water. Fertilizer is not necessary but it will encourage growth.I’m transplanting into a bigger pot, what soil should I pair these with?
We recommend organic potting soil. Add coco coir for moisture retention and aeration. After some time the soil may start compacting and this can cut of oxygen to the roots, so consider repotting every 6-12 months.Will my plants ship with the rest of my order?
Your plants will be shipped separately.
