RECOMMENDED PLANTS:  

Pothos Philodendron 

Staghorn fern

 

PLANTS TO AVOID:

Flowering plants (such as orchids)

Succulents 

Maidenhair fern

Ming Aralia

How to Take Care of Your Mounted Driftwood Planter

Mist daily. 

Water once every three to five days depending on the amount of light and humidity in your home. When the soil and moss dry out, it's time to water again. Don't wait until the leaves droop!

Water under a tap and allow to drip in sink before hanging it up again.

Place your driftwood planter directly in a north-facing window or two to three feet from a south, west, or east-facing window. They need bright, indirect light to grow.

Keep away from the radiator in winter.

Clip off any dead leaves.

Expect to repot once every few months with a new plant.
