The Polyscias originates from Polynesia to India and also found in South America. The Polyscias is there in various types, in addition to the balfouriana there are also the Fabian, Roble and Ming. During the months of April / until August fertilize once a week. moderate watering, summer slightly more than in the winter. The plant will make it when the leaves and then be cleaned with a damp cloth.
Because this pot is provided with a substrate and a water meter of the water is to give easy! Upon arrival, little water is in, fill the pot with water slowly (sometimes wait) and you will see that the meter automatically comes up. All you have to do is keep this meter eye. If you go on vacation you can fill nearly half full pot (which you see on the meter which then comes out well above average), and you can safely 14 days.
In addition, it does not get much and too fast water does not mind if the plants. Especially in the winter the plant less watering. Make sure the meter is higher than optimal and let the meter drop to the soil before re-watering.
The substrate absorbs water, so when the water meter at the bottom is the substrate is still damp, but there is no water at the bottom of the pot.
The plant is still roomy enough for four summer days.
So a few days leave dry is definitely not a problem, especially in times when the plant evaporates little it is recommended!
The polyscias is a separate and modern plant.
