Care & tips Polyscias Fabian XXL - 200 cm
The Polyscias Fabian XXL - 200 cm is not a difficult plant to take care of, but it does require a little more attention than others. The Polyscias needs the right location, namely in daylight without too much direct sunlight. The houseplant is naturally sensitive to pests, so make sure you do not put it in a draught. In a draught, the plant is even more susceptible to insects. If this does happen, fortunately it is easy to combat with a biological or chemical pesticide. The Polyscias can use some extra plant food in the summer, but we strongly advise against it in the winter. Make sure that you do not overfeed, as this can damage the plant.
Water requirements of the Polyscias Fabian XXL - 200 cm
The soil should always remain moist during the summer months. Do not let the soil dry out between waterings. You can easily check with your fingers whether the soil is still moist by feeling it. If the soil is dry at a deeper level, the plant can be watered again. We recommend that you water several times with small amounts rather than a large amount in one go. In the winter months, the soil may dry out a little between waterings before you water again.
