Care Tips


  • Grow earth stars in a bright spot
  • These small indoor plants can take some direct sun on their leaves, so they’re perfect for dressing up an otherwise bland window sill
  • If your earth stars seem pale, move them to a brighter spot



  • Water Earth Stars so the soil just dries before watering again
  • keep the soil moist, but not soggy
  • However they thrive in moist soil. Likewise, if you forget to water your earth stars now and again, they don’t mind



  • Keep the soil evenly moist
  • To create the perfect soil conditions for the earth star, combine regular potting soil with an equal amount of leaf mold or peat moss



  • It enjoys temperatures ranging from 20-30°C
  • When grown indoors, normal room temperature is fine



  • Transplanting is rarely needed, as this plant doesn’t grow very fast and may only last a few years. The roots are also delicate and don’t always survive repotting



  • Keep collecting the offsets 
  • Instead of dropping the offsets in the soil around the foliage and plant growth, the offsets are found between the leaves
  • The offsets should be left in place until you plan to propagate the plant
  • The offsets can be removed carefully and placed in the same type of soil recommended for the mother plant
  • After placing the offsets in their own pots, cover with plastic and add ventilation holes. Set the pots in a bright spot
  • Within two to three months, the plants should take root


Pests and Disease

  • Not prone to any major disease 
  • Though constant moisture can cause rot and fungal growth 
  • Trim off the affected area as soon as its detected

Why not use a fancy rigid box instead of a corrugated one when shipping this product?
To begin with, our corrugated box is of excellent quality and has numerous artworks on it. Therefore, it doesn't appear any less elegant. Our goal is packaging that is as environmentally friendly as it can be. We do not like to utilise rigid boxes because they require more paper and a lot of chemicals to manufacture. There is always a more environmentally friendly choice available: corrugated.
