CARE ADVICE

1. A light, sunny spot.

This means lots of sunlight but not in direct sunlight. A place in the windowsill is ideal.

2. Keep moist, the soil should not dry out:

It is important to give the plant enough water in order to enjoy this rich bloomer as long as possible. Do not let the pot soil dry out; the plant may be in a small layer of water twice a week. Once a month plant food should be given.

3. Remove old flowers:

To enjoy this beautiful plant for a longer period, it is recommended to sometimes remove old flowers. Remove the stem with the button completely, the plant then will grow a new stem with two buttons. The Starcluster can bloom easier this way and the plant can show beautiful flowers for months in a row.
