Paper Plant

Fatsia usually blooms in fall. Some people think the flowers and the shiny black berries aren't much to look at but the terminal clusters of bright white flowers offer relief from Fatsia deep shades of green in deep shade where aralia likes to grow.

Fertilize plants growing in the ground in spring after the danger of frost has passed. Use a tree and shrub fertilizer every year. Fertilize potted plants with a fertilizer designed for plants growing in containers. Be sure to follow the instructions.

Fatsia needs annual pruning to maintain a bushy growth habit and healthy, glossy leaves. Renewal pruning is best. You can cut the entire plant to the ground in late winter just before new growth begins or remove one-third of the oldest stems...

Flowering Cacti

Fatsia Japonica Cacti Plant

Flowers are costly structures for plants to produce. In the flowering money plant world, there is always a trade-off between growth and reproduction. Flowers are produced from axillary buds and usually only produce one flush of flowers.

The axillary buds of cacti are located at the base of their spines. This is where the flowers will eventually emerge. Unlike plants that can produce stems and branches, cacti must produce a new internode before they can produce more.

Think of it this way, if a cactus wants to produce 10 flowers, it must produce ten internodes to do so. Their harsh environments have forced most cacti into an extremely tight relationship between growth, water storage, photosynthesis and flowering.

Amazingly, some cacti have managed to break free from this evolutionary relationship. They have developed a strange looking structure called a cephalium. Essentially, you can think of the cephalium of a cactus as its adult reproductive position.

At some point in their development, something triggers these plants to switch to their adult forms. Axillary buds within either lateral or apical meristems switch their growth habit and begin forming the cephalium. It's not known what triggers the switch.

Things are a bit different for cacti that produce lateral cephalia. Genera such as Espostoa, Facheiroa, and Buiningia are less limited by their cephalia because they are produced along the ribs of the stem, thus leaving the apical meristem free.

There are other benefits to growing cephalia in addition to simply being able to produce more flowers. The densely packed spines and trichomes offer the developing flowers and fruits ample protection from both the elements and herbivores...

Parlor Palm
Parlor Palm Plant

Native to the rainforest regions of Mexico and Guatemala, this upright plant is perfectly suited to the average home or office with regard to temperature, available light and low humidity.

Since most members of the palm family are large, they generally are not useful as houseplants. However, Chamaedorea elegans is one of the few that have adapted beautifully. The plant's compact shape and ease of care have made it popular since Victorian times.

The parlor palm is a dwarf species frequently found in dish gardens and is able to live in cramped conditions when young. It is quite happy in a container that is rather small for it's size and doesn’t require a larger pot until its roots begin to mature.

Grown primarily for their foliage, parlor palms have short green trunks with bright green, fan-shaped leaves. Their attractive foliage emerges from arching fronds and gives the plant a feathery, canopy shape. Small plants take up little space.

Given enough light, a mature money plant will blossom indoors, producing sprays of small yellow flowers on tall stalks that rise above the foliage. These yellow flowers are insignificant, have little decorative effect and are easy to miss.

This money plant can be divided but it's not recommended. The heavy dieback of palm branches and slow recovery limits the success of this method of propagating. Separating the plant can be very traumatic to the roots of your wealth plant.

The amount of water the plant needs depends on the amount of light it gets. The lower the light, the less water it requires. Less water will be needed over the winter, but make sure the plant is kept moist. Parlor palms are not heavy feeders...

If you struggle with how often your should be watering your indoor plants then the Peace Lily will be a great option for you. It has a nice visual indicator when it needs water as the leaves start to droop. Diligent watering will keep the plant healthy.

If you notice the leaves on your peace lily are looking a little droopy or yellow then this could be a sign that it needs slightly more or less water. Drooping foliage that starts to flop and wilt downwards is a signal that your wealth plant needs water.

During the growing months, simply add a diluted balanced fertiliser around once a month. Follow the instructions on the packet but make a more diluted batch. Avoid adding fertiliser in the winter months as this is the plants dormant time.

Keep your Peace Lily growing at a healthy rate by repotting it when it starts to outgrow its current one. This usually takes around 1-2 years until the plant is fully grown. When repotting, choose a pot that is only slightly bigger than the current one.

Avoid letting a build up of dust collect on the leaves. Dust them every couple of weeks or wipe them over with a damp cloth to keep your money plant breathing easy. Peace Lilies are fabulous air purifying plants and are great to have...
