Frequently Asked Questions
1. What should I do when I receive my water plants?
On receiving your plants if there are any dry or rotten leaves on the plant please remove them. It's common for leaves to turn black during transit due to a lack of water, but don't worry, new leaves will grow in a few days.
Ensuring that you plant your water plants immediately, will reduce stress on the plant.
In case you can't do so immediately, you can float the entire plant in a bucket of water, including the roots and leaves, and keep it in the shade. Cover the plant with a damp newspaper to keep it moist. Please note that this is only a temporary solution, and you must plant your water lily within 24 hours of receiving it.
2. How do I care for my water plants ?
Water plants require minimal care once established. Remove any yellow, dead or dying leaves and do pruning when necessary. Keep them well-fed with aquatic plant fertilizer tablets (these are easily available in any garden store) or replant them once in 6 months with fresh soil and good quality compost in the ratio of 2:1
3. How do you ensure the plants survive during shipping?
To ensure the survival of our aquatic plants during shipping, we take great care in the packing and shipping process. We use specialized materials to keep the plants moist and protected throughout the transit.
Additionally, we avoid shipping during extreme weather conditions to minimize any stress on the plants.
4. Can I keep the plants in their shipping packets until I'm ready to plant them?
It's not advisable to keep the aquatic plants in their shipping packets for a prolonged period. It's crucial to plant them as soon as possible to ensure their well-being and proper growth.
