  1. African Violet - Saintpaulia

    The Saintpaulia originates from the tropical forests of the Usambara mountain range in East Africa . The ideal temperature for this plant is 18 - 20 C (room temperature) throughout the year. Make absolutely sure that the temperature does not drop below 15 C and especially avoid sudden temperature fluctuations.

    Put the Saintpaulia in a shady position in the summer and in a somewhat lighter position during the winter. The Saintpaulia does not tolerate dry air so that the plant is at a disadvantage on windowsills above heating (in the winter).

    Keep the plant constantly damp with lukewarm water but too much water causes root-rot. Do not water with cold water on the leaves or on the heart of the plant as this causes brown spots.

  5. Alocasia zebrina

    Alocasia zebrina Alocasia Zebrina, aka the Elephant ear plant, is one of our favourites. It has beautiful Zebra-like stems and gorgeous leaves, adding some serious swag to a room. Allow the top 5cm to dry out before watering and try to water the soil evenly. Overwatering and wet leaves can lead to fungal infections. Reduce the watering in winter when it's dormant. Happiest in bright but indirect light. Direct light will scorch the leaves. ​It prefers to be in temperatures between 15 and 29° C. It goes into a dormant state below 15° C and may lose some of its leaves. It likes high humidity but don't mist the leaves. If the area does not have natural humidity, you can place the pot on a tray filled with pebbles and water (don't allow the pot to sit in the water). These plants are harmful if eaten and can be a skin and eye irritant. Keep out of the reach of pets and children. Feed the plant between spring and autumn with a ½ strength standard houseplant fertiliser. Do not feed in winter as this can cause burning in the leaves from salt build-up.

  6. Aloe arborescens

    Aloe arborescens The krantz aloe develops into a multiheaded plant with striking grey green leaves arranged in attractive rosettes. The leaf margins are armed with conspicuous pale teeth. The large colourful flower spikes are borne in profusion during the winter months,brightening up a winter conservatory or greenhouse . Can be grown outdoors in the summer months but needs to be indoors for winter, protected from frost. The Zulu people use the leaves of this plant, dried and pounded into a powder, as a protection against storms. Decoctions of the leaves are also used in childbirth and in treating sick calves. In the Transkei it is used for stomach ache and given to chickens to prevent them from getting sick. In the Orient, this aloe is grown in domestic gardens as a convenient first-aid treatment for burn wounds and abrasions. In fact it was only after it was used to treat irradiation burn victims of Hiroshima that its healing properties received attention from the West. Extracts from the leaves have been widely investigated since then and shown significant wound healing, anti-bacterial, anti-ulcer, anti-inflammatory, anti-carcinogenic, hypoglycaemic and also alopoeic activity.

  7. Aloe vera in zinc bucket

    Aloe vera in zinc bucket Aloe vera Aloe has been well known for centuries for its healing properties, and both oral intake and topical dressings have been documented to facilitate healing of any kind of skin wound, burn, or scald - even speeding recovery time after surgery. Situations to try it on include blisters, insect bites, rashes, sores, herpes, urticaria, athlete's foot, fungus, conjunctivitis, sties, allergic reactions, and dry skin. The raw plant is best, but commercial preparations can also be used, especially for taking orally, as this plant tastes horrible. Other topical uses include acne, sunburn, frostbite (it appears to prevent decreased blood flow), shingles, screening out x-ray radiation, psoriasis, preventing scarring, rosacea, warts, wrinkles from aging, and eczema.

  8. Araucaria heterophylla - Norfolk Island Pine

    Araucaria heterophylla Norfolk Island pine is an evergreen conifer that makes a handsome house plant. Its long, horizontal branches are densely covered with short, soft needles that become darker as the plant ages. This plant not a true pine, it just looks like one. It also gets its name from Norfolk Island -- a small island in the Pacific between Australia, New Zealand and New Caledonia. As a house plant, you can expect it to reach about 3-6 ft (90 cm - 1.8 m). Slow-growing, it will take several years to reach this height. To understand how to care for these plants, remember their native environment, where they enjoy moderate temperatures, moist air and bright light. Norfolk Island Pine Care : Raise the humidity. Dry air will cause the needles to become dry and fall off. Keep your plant away from heat/AC vents. This Pacific Island native loves to be misted with room-temperature water. Or, use a room humidifier to add moisture. Growing Norfolk Island pine trees are thirsty, so check the soil often during the growing season. Yellow needles are typically caused by soil that's either too dry or soggy. Aim to keep it lightly moist at all times. Repot in spring. This plant is slow-growing, especially indoors. Move it into a pot 1 size larger every 3 years or when roots are visible on top of the soil. When the tree grows to more than 3 ft (90 cm) tall, top dress instead. Don't prune Norfolk pine. Never cut off the top or trim the sides of this plant. It doesn't need to be shaped at all. You can remove any lower branches that die, using sharp pruners to prevent tearing the stems.
