Plant care

Biophytum x snowman prefers bright but indirect sunlight, the leaves can get malformed with too much light and the plant will stay small when receiving insufficient light. The best place to keep it is on a window facing the east or west, but a window facing the north might be okay too however light exposure might then be insufficient at times. Araflora supplies with a well-draining and fertile soil, during the warmer months the soil should always be kept moist, but avoid drenching the soil. Araflora advises to water Biophytum x snowman with warm water. The leaves will get crinkled with insufficient water amounts and they will turn yellowish when you overwater the plant. Fertilizing can be done every two or three weeks during spring, summer and autumn with a water soluble fertilizer with half the dose. During wintertime the temperature should not drop below 16 degrees Celsius. During summertime Biophytum x snowman thrives with a temperature between 25 and 29 degrees Celsius. Biophytum x snowman likes a humid environment and is therefore perfectly suitable to keep in a terrarium. Araflora advises to mist Biophytum x snowman regularly when kept outside a terrarium.
