How to care for your Geo Plant

Use these instructions to care for a Geo Plant. This guide will tell you how to water a Geo Plant; its light, temperature, humidity preferences and any additional care it might need to help it grow.

Geo Plant

LIGHT

Your Geo Plant prefers bright indirect light. Avoid extended exposure to direct sunlight which may cause its leaves to scorch.

WATER

Water when 25-50% of the soil volume is dry. Water slowly, allowing it to soak into the soil until it drips out of the drainage hole. Discard any excess water that accumulates in the saucer.

HUMIDITY

Your Geo Plant prefers higher than average household humidity. Add a pebble tray, group plants to create a humid microclimate, or place a humidifier nearby.

TEMPERATURE

Your Geo Plant prefers temperatures between 60-75°F. Keep away from drafts and air vents, especially during the winter months.

FOOD

Feed once per month in the spring and summer with an all-purpose fertilizer for indoor plants. Do not apply fertilizer to dry soil.

TOXICITY

This plant is considered non-toxic and pet-friendly.

ADDITIONAL CARE

Keep the large, shiny leaves free of dust and debris by occasionally wiping them down with a soft cloth and water. The oldest leaves may yellow as the plant produces new growth. This is normal, and any yellowing leaves can be removed with clean, sharp snips.

About

The Geo Plant makes an instant statement in any space thanks to its extra-glossy, deep purple leaves. It pairs well with fine-textured, green-leaved plants like the Parlor Palm thanks to its bold leaf shape and deep coloration.

Native to South America, the Geo Plant prefers bright indirect light and consistent moisture. With age and ample humidity, the plant develops larger leaves as it grows up and out. Feel free to trim the stems back to maintain a more compact, tidy shape.

Fun Fact

Its gorgeous leaves can grow 8 inches or more as the plant matures!
