All our plants are locally sourced, from local stock or locally produced seeds. All soil and compost used is locally sourced, fully organic and pesticide free. These features ensure that all plants sold in our store are fully acclimatised to the Maltese climate and so are more prone to thrive at their new home.

As much as possible we try to utilise recycled or re-purposed planters for our plants to reduce our impact on the environment. Once at their new home they can be replanted in any container you wish, however if you prefer that we deliver you plants in a more traditional plastic planter we can do this as well.

Saucer Plant Care

 

These plants are considered fairly easy to care for both inside and outdoors. This plant is healthier in a shaded location.

The Saucer plant requires minimal watering and is considered to be drought-tolerant. Be sure to allow the top inch of the soil or potting medium to dry out before watering in the warmer months. During its growth season, liquid fertilizer can be applied to the soil on a monthly basis.

This plant may go dormant if exposed to high heat or to direct summer sun. The leaves curl to prevent excessive heat loss and will re-open once placed in a moist and shaded environment. It will do best when ambient temperatures are at 20°C.

This plant is safe for both humans and pets. It is not toxic, so your furry friends can safely play near this succulent.
