OX TONGUE PLANT CARE INSTRUCTIONS:
– Soil: Well draining soil is best. 3 parts compost and 1 part perlite or sand is a good mix. Other mixes will work well, but the aim is for the medium to drain well and be well aerated.
– Sun Exposure: Bright light without direct sunlight is best. A small amount of morning or evening sun won’t harm, but midday sun could scorch the leaves and harm the plant. Yellow or white leaves usually signify too much sun. East or west facing areas are best and check if the plant needs to sit further back from the window.
– Watering: Overwatering is the worst offender for most gasterias including this one. Water generously in summer but allow the soil to become dry in between waterings. During the winter reduce watering to once a month. Don’t allow water to sit in the rosette, I water gasterias from the bottom by leaving them in a dish of water till soil becomes moist and then taking them out back into the permanent position.
– Hardiness: Gasterias thrive in temperatures above 10C. Exposing them to cooler temperatures in winter will encourage flowering.
