Plant Care – Episcia cupreata
Light: Place your Episcia cupreata where it can receive bright and indirect sunlight. Do avoid placing it under direct sunlight as it will scorch its foliage! For the best blooms, place your plant at a spot where it can receive 8 hours of indirect sunlight a day.
Water: Water moderately every 3-4 days and mist occasionally to keep humidity high and the soil constantly moist. They prefer to dry out a little between each watering. Overwatering your plant can cause water beds, and this will result in root rot. A promising sign of overwatering would be a layer of white mould forming on the soil’s surface.
Soil: Allow the top surface of the soil to dry up between watering the plant. We recommend watering it once a week or whenever necessary. Overwatering your plant can cause water beds, resulting in root problems and its leaves to wilt. Skip a week of watering if it happens.
Fertiliser: Fertilise your plant lightly with a water-soluble Fertiliser once every 2 – 3 weeks, together with watering.
Humidity Requirement: Medium to High. Above 50%.
