While our plants look amazing by themselves, most people wish to put them in a decorative pot to be displayed in their home or office. While decorative pots make a statement, they also have a practical element - stopping water from leaking out of the grower pot and onto your bench, desk or floor.
The key to looking after your plant when it is in a decorative pot is to monitor the soil moisture. We recommend keeping your plant in its plastic pot, and finding a decorative pot to fit. This way when the plant needs watering you can take the plastic pot out. When you water, we recommend giving it a good soak, and then letting the water run out of the pot in a sink/bath/balcony etc. Once the water has stopped running out then you can put the plant back in your decorative pot.
The key here is to avoid allowing your plant to sit in a pool of water, which can rot the roots, eventually killing the plant. Often people think browning leaves mean the plant is thirsty. On the contrary, it usually means the plant is getting too much water. To be sure, put your finger into the soil. If the soil is dry, it is ok to water. If it feels wet, leave it longer before you water again. In summer this can be a few days, while in winter it could be a few weeks.
