Plants and people- there’s really not that much difference to be seen. You need food, your lovely little Calathea needs nutrients. Your Bella Palm needs water to survive (a light mist every day is much appreciated) and you obviously need to drink water every now and again.
Honestly, this is probably a good time to remind you to fill up that glass with something other than coffee. Don’t worry, we all do it. It tastes beautiful but it’s super important to stay hydrated. Water does that for you and your plant.
When you drink that cup of water, think of your plant, whether it’s perched on a window sill or gracing the corner of your living room, it also want the water. Of course, the amount depends on the plant. As a plant parent, you've got the task of caring for them.
Then there’s sunshine. As much as you love chilling in your house with the blinds shut tight, watching movies from noon until night, you do actually need to catch some rays. Like your Neon Pathos!
I assume you’re grasping the pattern at this point. What you need, your plants also need. This is something to be kept in mind when the next love of your life (maybe that Bella Palm we talked about earlier) arrives on your doorstep from Essencia Air.
They’ve had a really long flight, a really long road trip. They need to stretch their legs, have a sip or two of water, get a bite to eat, and soak up something other than the darkness of their shipping container (like sunshine!).
You, as their new and very understanding plant parent, are going to provide this to the best of your ability. As always, if you have any questions about your new air-cleansing pal, don’t hesitate to reach out to us on our website to ask us all the questions your heart desires. We promise to help you along the way with your plant.
Here’s a pro-tip: put yourself in the plants shoes- er- pot. What would you want if you were them? Is the soil dry? Are they thirsty?
Let’s wrap up with some things to remember after unwrapping your Essencia Air plant: after it’s travel it’ll need some extra love from you. Think of yourself after a long trip, a drink of water and a little bit of sunshine goes a long way!
You’ve got this!
