Light: These plants lurk in the shade. Grown as a houseplant, they’ll like ambient light only. Avoid direct sun rays which will be too strong for the leaves. Bright light is fantastic, but slightly diffused light is also sufficient. These are slow growers, so give them time to reach full potential.

Water: Geogenanthus require moist soil, though it’s unnecessary to keep them overly saturated or in a puddle. Aim for moist, not muddy. Once the soil feels dry just below the surface, you should water. 

Environment: Moisture in the air is key, so supplement humidity levels if needed.

Toxicity: Geogenanthus are reported to be non-toxic.

Of note: 

  • Geogenanthus have distinct leaf colors; blemishes or faded colors can mean they’re getting too much sunlight.
