Monstera

The window leaf or Swiss cheese plant is an absolute trendy plant and attracts all eyes in every home. The monstera comes from the tropical rainforest of South America and climbs up the jungle giants.

Location

The monstera prefers a semi-shady to bright spot with indirect light. In addition, for some species, such as the Monstera Deliciosa, sufficient space should be planned, as these plants grow quickly and can develop large leaves.

Temperature

The temperature should not be below 14°C, the monstera feels most comfortable between 8 and 24C°. The humidity should be at least 50%, otherwise your window leaf will get brown tips. They don't like draughts and heated air at all.

Watering

Watering is relatively simple. When the first 2-3 cm of soil have dried, watering should be done. Make sure you fertilise enough, otherwise the leaves can quickly turn yellow.

Care

Monsteras are climbers, so you should provide them with a climbing support.
Pot up when the roots come out of the bottom of the pot. Variegated monsteras need a lot of light and very white a high humidity of over 70%.

Toxic

Toxic to animals and humans!

Philodendron

The philodendron, also called tree friend, originally comes from the rainforests of South America. With the right care, it will become your friend too.

Location

The philodendron likes a light to shady location with indirect light. Direct light is a horror to it and can lead to fading and sunburn of the leaves. The brighter the location, the denser and larger the leaves will grow.

Temperature

Because the tree friend is native to tropical rainforests, it feels most comfortable at a temperature of 21°C and then grows fastest. However, it can also withstand temperatures as low as 12°C.

Watering

From spring to summer, the philodendron wants to be watered about 1-2 times a week. Up to a medium size, these plants do not need much water, but they like the top 2-3 cm of the soil to be moist. .
In winter you should water less, but you can spray the plant with water from time to time. Heizungsluft mag er nicht.

Care

Most philodendrons like to climb and get the biggest leaves if you let them climb on a trellis, for example. The tree friend is grateful for high humidity above 50%, but can also withstand lower humidity levels.
If you spray this plant with water from time to time or place it in e.g. a greenhouse display case, it will have fewer problems unfolding new leaves.

Toxic

Very toxic for animals and humans!

Anthurium

Anthuriums, also known as flamingo flowers, are loved by plant lovers not only for their colourful flowers but also for their beautiful mostly heart-shaped leaves.

Location

Anthuriums prefer bright but indirect light. The mostly velvety, dark leaves should be protected from direct sunlight to prevent sunburn.

Temperature

Anthuriums thrive best at a moderate warmth of 18° to 23°C. If the air is too dry, the flamingo flower will get crispy edges or the new leaves will develop deformed, so keep the humidity between 60% and 80%. Therefore, the plant should live in a greenhouse showcase or be placed near a humidifier. (Ensure sufficient ventilation so that no fungal infection develops!)

Watering

Regular watering is very important for anthuriums. The substrate must be kept evenly moist. Therefore, anthuriums should always be planted in an airy substrate with good drainage to avoid yellow spots on the leaves after watering. Also, your anthurium does not like water that is too chalky.

Care

Your anthurium will most likely need a little more care than your other plants, such as monsteras. This is mainly due to the high humidity requirements. But you will be rewarded with the most beautiful leaves in the whole plant world. Anthuriums grow rather compact: the leaves, up to 100cm tall, develop directly from the root ball, which makes them grow rather bushy.

Toxic

Toxic to animals and humans!

Syngonium

Purple turkeys are among the plants with the most colourful leaves. You can either let them climb or leave them as a hanging plant in your home.

Location

Your Syngonium prefers a light to semi-shady location. Especially variegated species should be placed rather brightly in order to maintain the variegation.

Temperature

Syngoniums like it not too hot and not too cold. Temperatures between 15C° and 25° are ideal. Be careful, your syngonium is very sensitive to frost! They prefer a high humidity, but they can also withstand lower humidity.

Watering

The soil of your Syngonium should never be too moist. Therefore, you should water this plant at least once a week when the top layer of the substrate is dry.

Care

These plants are generally very easy to care for. You can repot your purple turtle in the warm months when roots are protruding from the bottom of the pot. Airy soil is an advantage to prevent root rot. It is sufficient to fertilise your plant once a month. A great advantage of your Syngonium is that it can be propagated easily, e.g. in water.

Toxic

Toxic to pets and humans!

Alocasien

Alocasias originate from tropical Asia. Its nickname is also elephant ear. This quite demanding plant is guaranteed to be a real eye-catcher in your home.

Location

It is very important that your Alocasia gets plenty of sunlight (e.g. from a west window) so that the old leaves do not die after a new one has developed. However, they do not like direct sunlight. In addition, your Alocasia should be placed in a warm place, but not near a heater.

Temperature

As alocasias grow relatively quickly, the temperature should never fall below 18 °C. Your elephant ear will feel comfortable at a humidity of at least 50%.

Watering

These plants are very sensitive to drought. Make sure that the substrate of your Alocasia is always evenly moist. Otherwise they will quickly drop their leaves. You may have to water your elephant ear several times a week.

Care

Alocasias also have a high root growth, and therefore need enough space and soil in the pot. This will prevent the soil from drying out quickly. Be sure to use an airy soil with good drainage so that the leaf tips and edges of your Alocasia do not turn brown/yellow.

Toxic

Mildly toxic to pets and humans.

Dieffenbachia

The Dieffenbachia is known for its pretty leaves. It is native to South America and is highly valued for its air-purifying properties as a houseplant.

Location

Your Dieffenbachia prefers a semi-shady spot, as it can quickly get crispy leaves from direct sunlight. Draughts or proximity to radiators should be avoided, otherwise yellow leaves will quickly develop.

Temperature

This plant loves high humidity and warm surroundings. That is why it is perfect as a bathroom plant.

Watering

The substrate should always be kept slightly moist so that your Dieffenbachia does not get yellow leaves. To nourish the large and colourful leaves, fertilise every few weeks during the warm months.

The substrate should always be kept slightly moist so that your dieffenbachia does not develop yellow leaves.

Care

You should allow enough space for your Dieffenbachia, as a plant can grow to a height of over one metre and very bushy.

Toxic

Very toxic to pets and humans, even the water that collects in the pot or saucer is highly toxic. Ingestion of all parts can lead to severe swelling of the respiratory tract and mucous membranes!

Pilea

Because of its round leaves, which seem to float, it is also called ufo plant. It has become very popular in recent years.

Location

The ufo plant feels most comfortable in bright locations with indirect light, otherwise the leaves become concave and lose colour.

Temperature

Pileas also tolerate low temperatures, but they grow between 15°C and 18°C. When it comes to humidity, the pilea tolerates both normal indoor humidity and higher humidity.

Watering

Watering pileas is somewhat more difficult: the substrate must always be kept slightly moist. If it gets too dry or too wet, root rot will quickly develop and the leaves will fall off quickly.

Care

Pilea plants are easy to propagate because the mother plant produces small cuttings from the soil all year round. When repotting each year, be careful not to damage the delicate roots, otherwise your Pilea could take it badly.

Hoya

Hoyas, wax flowers, or porcelain flowers are very popular as houseplants, as they are relatively easy to care for and very decorative when hanging as hanging baskets.

Location

Hoyas need lots of bright but indirect light. Hanging in an east-facing window, they will thrive and, with a little luck, reward you with beautiful little flowers that smell of candyfloss, for example.

Temperature

Because of their thick and fleshy leaves, hoyas tolerate temperatures from 10 °C to 23 °C. They also tolerate relatively low humidity, but grow faster at a higher humidity.

Watering

You can water your Hoya as soon as the soil has dried completely or the leaves are slightly bendy and shrivelled.

Care

Hoyas are very easy to care for houseplants and therefore also suitable for beginners. You should only repot if your hoya has problems with its flowers, as it generally develops few roots, your wax flower likes it a little tighter in the pot to be happy.
