How to care for Salix Flabellaris


Salix Flabellaris should be watered regularly, allowing the soil to dry out between waterings.


When growing Salix Flabellaris, it is important to pay attention to the soil type you are using. This plant is very sensitive to dry soil and needs a potting soil that retains moisture. A good soil should still be well-draining and contain lots of organic matter. Coco coir or sphagnum moss are great options to provide the Salix Flabellaris with the nutrients and moisture it needs. The added organic matter will also help the soil retain water and prevent the Salix Flabellaris from drying out too quickly. Before planting, make sure to mix compost or manure into the soil for extra nutrients. Also, make sure to water the Salix Flabellaris regularly, making sure to keep the soil evenly moist but never soggy. With the correct soil and watering regimen, the Salix Flabellaris will thrive and bring lots of beauty to your home.


Salix Flabellaris requires abundant, bright and direct light. Placing it less than one foot from a window is the best way to make sure the plant receives enough light to survive and thrive. Depending on your region, however, the current weather can affect the placement of the plant in your home. For example, in some areas the sun may be too direct and intense, so it's best to place it farther away from the window. You may also need to adjust your placement according to the season as the sunlight can change intensity over the course of the year. If you live in a region with significant temperature fluctuations, such as a desert, you may need to place the plant a bit farther away from the window to avoid extreme heat or cold. With some care and attention, your Salix Flabellaris will be sure to bring you many years of beauty and enjoyment.
