About Baby Plants
Perfect for the beginner or the houseplant enthusiast with a smaller amount of space, baby plants are small houseplants that are usually grown in 5-6 cm pots. These small starter plants are a great way to introduce someone to growing plants at home and get the satisfaction of watching these plants grow into full-grown houseplants over time.
What are Baby plants?
Baby plants are smaller versions of bigger, common houseplants. These small houseplants have been specially grown from the cuttings of larger plants, by seed or through tissue culture by our experts who know how to get the best results every time. Unlike some young houseplants that come as just a sprout, our baby plants are just miniature versions of the houseplants you know and love.
How to Take Care of Your Baby Houseplant?
Much like human children, baby plants need some special care and attention to grow into healthy adults. These plants are a bit more fragile than larger houseplants and need to be handled carefully to avoid breaking the stems or foliage. Your houseplants require less light than bigger plants and need a space in your home that has bright, but indirect light. The light needed will be less than other plants so they can be placed in slightly darker rooms. Keep a close eye on the soil since smaller pots dry out a lot quicker. Water little and often to keep the soil moist, and not wet.
Will I need to repot my Baby Plant?
As your plants grow, their root systems will spread out and eventually grow too big for their pot. When this happens, your plant will stop growing and will need to repotted. These plants go quick so you may find yourself repotting it every three to four months initially, but it will slow down over time. . When you repot your plant make sure you only do so into a container that is about one or two inches bigger than the one it is already in.
