Botanical name: Geogenanthus poeppigii

Common name: The geo plant

Kingdom: Plantae

Family:  Commelinaceae

Genus: Geogenanthus

Origin: Upper Amazonia, South America


Light: Moderate to low light

Water: This plant doesn't like to dry out! Prefer evenly moist soil. Do this by watering with less water- more frequently around every 5 days giving the plant a "top up". The water shouldn't flow through the bottom with this watering protocol  because that is too much water.

Fertilizer: With active growth (even in winter) we recommend using a fertilizer based for foliage plants like Dynagro foliage pro, Gaia green 444 or fish fertilizer.

Pet Friendly:  Yes
