Coffee On The Crescent Plant Care Guide

We  love plants. They lift our mood, clean our air and just make the shop look lovely. All five of us have plants everywhere at home too. So here's our guide to keeping them happy and healthy in your home.

Maranta's (Prayer plants)

These are really special and fun because their leaves say goodnight to you by folding up like praying hands and then open out again in the morning to receive the  days sunshine. Place it somewhere you are going to see it at the start and end of your day they are wonderul.

Here's Tims Maranta Fascinator. They are tropical plants so will love the humidity found in your kitchen and bathroom. Keep them by the window but out of direct sunlight. I water mine once a week in the winter and twice in the hotter months.

MonsteraDeliciosa (The Big Cheese)

Are you even human if you don't have a cheese plant! Both beautiful and fast growing they get their name for their characteristic cheese like pattern in their They love bright indirect light so a south facing room is ideal. They can do well in l shady spots but their growth will be slower. Water once a week and twice in warmer months. They grow fast.

Sansev Laurenti (snake Plant/Mother in laws tongue)

These are brilliant for beginners they are almost impossible to kill. They are desert plants so are experts in survival even in some of the harshest environments. If you  love plants but have a tendency to forget to water them this is a good one to get.

They prefer direct sunlight (picture below) but they are also really resilient to shady areas. They are  ideal for those spots in your house (shady or bright) that may not be suitable for any other plant.

Water them once a month in the summer months and you every two months in the winter.

Sansev Cylinders

Another resilient and beautiful desert plant the Sansev cylinder prefers bright indirect light but can also thrive in low light areas. We have them in a shady corner in the back of the shop and they are doing just fine. Water when the soil gets dry.

Coffea Arabica

We love stocking these for obvious reasons. They have beautiful rich and dark green colour. They love a bit of humidity so kitchen and bathrooms are ideal. They only have thin leaves so avoid putting them in direct sunlight.

This wonderful plant will tell you when it needs water as the leaves will noticeably droop. downwards. Don't worry give them water and 24 hours later they'll be refreshed and looking like the picture below. I water once a week as part of my plant care routine.

These grow quickly and can be repotted easily if you want them to promote further growth.
