DIY: Clusia in water
You can make your own Clusia in water by following these simple steps:
- Find a large bucket.
- Take the plant out of the nursery pot and remove most of the soil from the roots. Hold the roots under the tap and gently rinse off the remaining soil.
- Fill the glass vase with water (at room temperature) until the roots are just covered by the water.
- Find a nice spot in your home for the vase. It's that easy!
Extra tip: To prevent scaling in the vase, use spring water instead of tap water. Spring water is also full of minerals that help the plant to grow.
Clusia rosea likes it humid so spray the leaves regularly with rainwater to keep the humidity high and the beautiful glossy look of the leaves preserved.
Clusia is a tropical plant from the Caribbean.
New research has classified Clusia into its own family (Clusiaceae).
