How to care for Bonita Earth Star


Bonita Earth Star does best in dry soil and should only be watered sparingly.


Bonita Earth Star loves a well-draining soil. Perlite and vermiculite help with drainage, while coco coir adds organic matter, so a good potting soil mix will have all three. You can improve store-bought soil by adding some perlite to it.
