How to Set Up Your Water Plant: A guide to setting up your water plants.

Unpack carefully

  • Vase & Plant

 Prepare the Vase

  • If you choose to have pebbles, place the pebbles on the bottom of the vase carefully
  • The crown of the plant (where the roots meet the plant) must be kept above the water
  • Some people do not use pebbles but they do help to keep the crown of the plant above the water. Alternatively, you can use a shot glass or small glass bowl to lift the crown of the plant above the water line.
  • The roots can be spread out very carefully and it is ok if some are above the water.
  • Stabilise the plant using the pebbles or your glass vessel.
  • Pour in the water gently. Below is a picture with the crown out of the water with and without pebbles.


         How to care for your water plants

  • Our plants have grown in Tasmanian tap water.
  • Place them in room temperature water and place in indirect light.
  • They do not like bright light.
  • Let them settle for a week and then follow "Beginners Guide to Water Plants"
  • We are using 5ml per litre of growth technology CCS Clonex Clone solution (order online). It is a premium nutrient for cuttings and seedlings once a month.
