Care & tips Grass Lily hanging plant - 30cm
The Grass Lily is an easy houseplant to take care of. However, it is always possible that it does not like it, and it will show this by means of its leaves. Hanging leaves are a sign of a water shortage. Feel the soil before giving more water. Never give a large amount in one go, because the grass lily will not be able to absorb it. When the grass lily is placed in a spot that is too bright, its leaves will become pale. If there is too little sunlight, the leaf markings will disappear and no new leaves will grow.
Water requirements for the Grass Lily hanging plant - 30cm
As mentioned, the Grass Lily is an easy to take care of hanging plant. In the summer months, you will need to water your Grass Lily two to three times a week, and in the winter months once a week will suffice. This houseplant likes a moist soil, but be careful not to give it too much water. It is better for the Grass Lily to be a little too dry than too wet. If it gets too much water, its feet will get wet and this increases the chance of root rot, which you want to avoid of course! Keep a close eye on the soil (especially in the early days). Watering is different for every grass lily and depends on a number of factors, such as: humidity, location and temperature. If you notice that the soil feels a little dry two days after watering, it is best to give a little more water next time. However, if you notice that the soil is still very wet after five days, it is better to give less water the next time you water.
Light requirements Grass lily hanging plant - 30cm
The best place for a Grass Lily is in a light and warm spot. However, full sunlight is just too much for this houseplant. We advise you to place the grass lily near a window facing north or in a place with indirect sunlight. If this does not work, you can also place the grass lily in a darker spot. One consequence of this, however, is that the leaves of the Grass Lily will also become darker in colour and the leaf markings will be less visible. It is also important that you do not place this houseplant close to a heater. The grass lily likes a high humidity and a heater will cause the air to become dry.
