A potted Stephania Erecta
*Please note this plant is in dormant right now. Leaves may not be present at the time of purchase*
This popular and trendy plant, native to Thailand, resembles a potato bulb and produces vines that are very thin and delicate with deep green disc-shaped leaves. Your plant will come potted in a handmade ceramic vessel.
How to care for your new Stephania Erecta:
Disclaimer: These rare and beautiful plants are not for beginners and we recommend purchasing a Stephania Erecta for the advanced plant lover in your life.
LIGHT: In the beginning, bright indirect sunlight is enough. Once the plant has sprouted, move it closer to the window, but never in direct sunlight. Direct sunlight may cause permanent damage to the plant and a shrinking tuber is a sign of the plant being over-exposed to sunlight.
Short/straight branches with large verdant leaves are signs that the plant is getting enough sun, whereas, if only the stem is growing, and there are no leaves/small leaves, that means it needs more light than the current situation.
WATER: These plants need to be watered 1-2 times a week, depending on temperature. The soil should be moist but not soggy. The plant goes into dormancy during the winter season. During this time, watering should be reduced to about once a month.
HUMIDITY: Gently mist the foliage from time to time to hydrate the leaves and keep the dust levels down. A humidity level of 60% or higher is best for these plants.
