Type 5

Ferns/ Fittonias - consistent humidity around foliage

LIGHTING:

Type 5 plants prefer cooler spots with lower light levels/dappled shade. They can thrive in brighter spots away from direct sunshine, but it’s important to maintain humidity around the foliage at all times.

WATERING:

These plants prefer damp soil. Water thoroughly to prevent soil from drying out, but make sure it is never sitting in standing water as this can lead to root rot.
 
What we do:
We check the top of soil before watering type 5 plants. If the soil is only slightly damp but drying out then it can be watered. If the soil feels wet/saturated then we don’t add more water and check the soil again a few days later. We water type 5 plants once a week during the summer months, and every 7-10 days in winter.
 
N.B. Remember its not all about the frequency of watering, but also the volume of water given. If you think your soil is too wet or too dry, try keeping the same routine but altering how much water you give each time.

SOIL:

Type 5 plants prefer free draining, rich soil. If your pot doesn’t have drainage holes, be careful not to water too much to avoid excess moisture sitting around the roots, as this can lead to root rot.
