How to care for French Hydrangea
French Hydrangea needs 0.5 cups of water every 9 when it doesn’t get direct sunlight and is potted in a 5" pot.
Use our water calculator to personalize watering recommendations to your environment or download Greg for more advanced recommendations for all of your plants.
French Hydrangea love being close to bright, sunny windows 😎.
Place it less than 1ft from a south-facing window to maximize the potential for growth.
French Hydrangea does not tolerate low-light 🚫.

Most potting soils come with ample nutrients which plants use to produce new growth.
By the time your plant has depleted the nutrients in its soil it’s likely grown enough to need a larger pot anyway.
To replenish this plant's nutrients, repot your French Hydrangea after it doubles in size or once a year—whichever comes first.
What other plant parents say
I absolutely LOVE hydrangea blooms but it has been a challenge for me to grow. My Grandma had a huge bush in her yard and I am determined to have one. After planting several in my yard with no success I decided to try growing in a pot. My husband got me two small starter plants last year. All the leaves fell off. I brought them in for the winter and put outside as soon as weather permitted. So far they’re growing. I go by Greg’s watering schedule and water carefully so that none gets on the leaves (it causes brown spots)
Not safe for any pets such as cats,dogs, and horses so please please please if you have pets do not get hydrangeas or at least keep them outside if you live in neighbourhood that doesn’t have strays or animals that well come and eat your flowers, but in good news they are extremely pretty and really make your home look exotic!!!easy to maintain for experienced plant owners, if your new to gardening and owning plants I would start of with some easier flowers
