Light: Farfugium grows best in ample bright light. Avoid dim light which results in weak growth or direct sun which can stress the leaves.
Water: Water fully and with a frequency to maintain even soil moisture. A rich, well-draining soil is ideal. Leaves will droop slightly when thirsty, and this will help you determine when is best to water again. Avoid any excess or standing water.
Environment: Avoid warm / stuffy scenarios as these plants actually prefer cooler conditions. Avoid drafts including forced air vents. Fertilize regularly spring to autumn.
Toxicity: These plants are toxic.
- The broad, round leaves of this plant earn it the nickname “tractor seat plant.”
- Wipe these broad leaves clean of any dust or dirt routinely to keep them looking and performing their best.
*When planting in a pot without a drainage hole, avoid over watering by estimating 25% of the container’s overall volume, with appropriate drainage materials incorporated when planting.
