Floridea pockets can hold almost all decorative plants and herbs, even vegetables or smaller fruits; for example: cherry tomatoes, gourds and hanging strawberries. Creeping plants are very suitable; for example different types of ivy and dragon-tail plants. While choosing the plant keep in mind specific needs for light and warmth. While purchasing, double-check the state of your plant (good shape, healthy).
Besides soil and water, plants that live in pockets require a lot of love. Here are some tips on how to keep your plants in Floridea pockets strong and healthy:
1. Ensure that they get enough water and natural light!
2. Occasionally cut off dead leaves and blossoms with scissors - this encourages the growth of new ones.
3. You can use the cuttings to liven up the space between different plants.
4. Every once in a while sweep off the dust with a soft brush or cloth.
5. During active growth and blooming, plants require more water and fertilizer than normally.
