GINNY

GINNY

Product Description:

Rhaphidophora tetrasperma Monsteras are all the rage, and Ginny is a cute, petite look-alike of its Aroid relative, the majestic Monstera deliciosa. An un-fussy and relatively fast grower, Ginny is a good climber and appreciates a trellis or moss pole for support. The jade green, heart-shaped leaves are glossy and flaunt the signature splits when mature. Give this one medium to bright light and frequent water (especially during the growing season) for best results.

Houseplants are 1 year old and are ready to ship now. Plants are in 3 ½ inch pots. Order early for best availability. Detailed growing instructions are included with each order and may be obtained below. Available only within the contiguous US.

Aroid is the common name for members of the Araceae family of plants, which includes Philodendrons. These houseplants are among the most popular for their ease of cultivation and stunning foliage.

These instructions are appropriate for the following plants:
Birkin Philodendron (Philodendron ‘Birkin’)
Silver Sword Philodendron (Philodendron hastatum)
Ginny Mini Monstera (Rhaphidophora tetrasperma)
Satin Pothos (Scindapsus pictus)

It is very important to unbox these plants immediately upon arrival. Test the soil, and if it is dry to the touch, water thoroughly and allow excess water to drain off. Never allow the plants to sit in water.

Light Exposure
Provide a location indoors with medium to bright, indirect light (Satin Pothos can tolerate lower light). Avoid a location with direct, hot afternoon sun especially in summer.

Irrigation
Water thoroughly when the soil surface is dry, and always allow the excess water to drain off. Watering frequency may change depending on the plant’s light exposure, ambient temperature, humidity, and day length, so test the soil moisture with your finger!

Fertilization
Use an all-purpose houseplant fertilizer monthly during the growing season. Follow the label directions.

Repotting
Depending on the particular plant and its growing conditions, you may need to repot it. If the plant has produced a lot of foliage and appears too big for its container or if it’s sending heavy roots out of the drainage holes, it may be good to give it more room.
Choose a larger container and use standard potting soil for indoor plants.

Support
Vining Aroids can benefit from a trellis or other support. A moss pole offers the added benefit of a secure place for the aerial roots to cling to and absorb moisture. A simple
DIY moss pole can be fashioned with moistened sphagnum or coco coir tied to a wooden, bamboo or plastic stake. The plant may require some initial training to cling to the pole, which can be done by gently tying the vine to the pole with cotton or jute twine. For instructions on moss pole assembly, check the internet. A quick search will yield lots of ideas!
