Ghost Plant love being close to bright, sunny windows 😎.
Place it less than 1ft from a south-facing window to ensure it receives enough light to survive during this time of reduced sunlight intensity in Dallas, Texas ⛅.
Ghost Plant 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 Ghost Plant after it doubles in size or once a year—whichever comes first.
What other plant parents say
Goodness, I bought Huginn and Muninn quite a few years ago, originally for a school project. After that, they sat on my porch for over two years, no intervention. They survived strictly off of the rainfall my area got. Not a pretty sight, but a surviving one. I decided to repot them and take them inside. I’ve had them inside for about half a year and they’re recovering to the beauty they once held, slowly but surely.
If you don’t trust your capabilities of keeping plants alive, I suggest ghost plants, mine have been crazy hardy, they are definitely survivors.
