Your pitch apple plant comes in a standard nursery pot. You can either pot up, using humus-rich potting compost, or stand it pot and all in an attractive planter. A saucer will also suffice. Extra drainage water may stand for a while – allow the plant time to absorb it. The water should all be gone before further watering.
Stand your Clusia rosea in the warm (preferably not below 16 degrees centigrade), out of direct sun. In cooler environments it will require less water.
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.
Feed regularly with plant food for indoor leafy plants and it will produce a bushier plant.
Allow to dry out a little in the winter and only start again with regular watering and feeding in the spring.
Clusia is a tropical plant from the Caribbean.
New research has classified Clusia into its own family (Clusiaceae).
