This plant is very famous in China and it is regarded there as a plant for good luck. Feng Shui also describes the same importance for the plant. It can grow faster in full sunlight with less water. This plant is sun loving and can grow upto height of 3 feet. It’s a long life plant and can survive upto 10-15 years.
This plant is almost maintenance free. Even without fertilisers, this plant will show satisfactory growth. It becomes dormant during extreme cold (if temperature is less than 50 C). However, use of fertiliser shows faster growth. If we have grown this plant and we don’t water it for 7-9 days, it can survive. But leaves may wilt and after watering the plant, leaves will be normal. Even with low level of atmospheric humidity (20% ), this plant continues to grow healthily.
Watering & Sunlight:
This plant likes to grow in full sunlight. It can survive without water for a longer time. We should water it after a gap of 3 days during summer season, if soil has become fully dry. Drainage in pot is necessary by making sufficient holes in bottom. To make the ideal potting mix, 20 % drainage media (river sand/ Leca/ Perlite/ Pumice or rice husk- use any one of them) in potting mix should be available. In rest of the potting mix, we should mix vermicompost (20 %) and garden soil in equal ratio. During extreme cold, reduce watering frequency. The plant can grow in diffused sunlight also.
Use : This plant is widely used as gift and good luck plant.
We should not do re-potting of plants immediately after receiving. Please wait for a week. Let the plants adjust in new atmosphere of your home. Repotting and disturbance to their roots will adversely affect life of plants.
