Species can vary. If you do have a preference in species we ask that you come visit us at the store to hand select the one of your liking. When placing the order online we will select one for you and can not guarantee an exact coloration or variety.
Images are used for general reference only. The size and shape of each plant will vary as will the flower color and bloom state.
Light: Abutilon generally prefer full sun to part shade indoors. An east-facing window is ideal. In a south- or west-facing window, they might need some midday protection in summer months.
Water: Even moisture to slightly dry to the touch. They appreciate reduced watering and some additional humidity during the winter months.
Environment: They don't mind being in a cooler room in the house. Keep away from heating/AC vents. Feed your flowering maple houseplant every two weeks with a balanced houseplant fertilizer during spring through fall. In winter, when growth has slowed down, reduce feeding to once a month.
Toxicity: Reported to cause skin irritation in some. No information on pets.
