Temperature Tantrums: Inconsistent Temperature

🌑️ Spot the Signs

Brush Cherry plants are like Goldilocks; they don't appreciate it too hot or too cold. When leaves start to bail like party guests at a lame event, you've got a sign. And if your plant's growth is more sluggish than a Monday morning, take it as a red flag.

  • Leaf drop is your plant's way of saying, "I'm out."
  • Slowed growth signals a serious dislike for the current vibe.

🌑️ Climate Control

To keep your Brush Cherry from throwing a fit, think of it as a creature of habit. It thrives on consistencyβ€”no sudden temperature spikes or drops, please.

  • Stable temperatures are the secret sauce. Aim for that sweet spot where your plant looks like it's on a permanent staycation.
  • Shielding from drafts is key. Keep your plant away from the arctic blast of an air conditioner or the desert wind of a heater. It's not a fan of surprises.

Remember, a happy Brush Cherry is one that doesn't have to put up with your temperature mood swings. Keep it steady, and you'll keep it steady.
