How to care for your Outdoor Minimalist Collection Care

Use these instructions to care for an Outdoor Minimalist Collection Care. This guide will tell you how to water an Outdoor Minimalist Collection Care; its light, temperature, humidity preferences and any additional care it might need to help it grow.

Minimalist Outdoor Collection


Place your planter outdoors in an area where it will receive 4 or fewer hours of direct sunlight per day. Avoid direct sunlight, especially during the early afternoon hours, which can scorch the foliage.


Water when 50% of the soil volume is dry. During periods of high temperatures, check your planter daily for water. During periods of cooler temperatures, your planter will need to be watered less frequently.


Your planter tolerates a wide range of humidity. In areas with low humidity and during windy conditions, your planter will need to be watered more frequently.


Your planter tolerates a wide range of temperatures. It will grow quickly when night temperatures are consistently above 60°F. Prolonged exposure to temperatures below 35°F should be avoided, as this can stunt growth. Freezing temperatures can kill these plants.


To encourage maximum flowering and growth, fertilize your planter once every two weeks with a fertilizer high in phosphorus, like one with an N-P-K ratio of 15-30-15 or similar.


Some plants in this planter are considered toxic to pets and humans if ingested.


PLANTING: If you’ve ordered a biodegradable fiber pot, simply place the pot into your planter and surround it with fresh potting soil. There’s no need to remove the fiber material, which will naturally break down as the roots of the plants grow into the surrounding soil. Discoloration or mold growth on the fiber pot upon delivery is normal and is not harmful to your plants—this indicates the pot is slowly breaking down as designed.  //  FLOWERING: The flowering plants in this planter will continually rebloom with proper care. Old, declining blooms can be removed and discarded, which will allow the plant to put energy toward producing new blooms.  //  END OF SEASON: This planter features some plants that have an annual lifecycle, which means they will not survive more than one growing season. We recommend composting the plants after they experience a hard frost in the fall.

Image of Impatiens

The double flowers of this Impatiens lend a luxe look thanks to layer upon layer of petals. Keep this plant tidy by removing shriveled blooms once they are spent—if left on the plant, the old flowers can rot in humid or wet weather and cause fungal issues.

Image of Dichondra

Dichondra needs very little care to grow impressively long vines that catch the wind gracefully. Feel free to trim back any vines by up to half if you prefer a clean-cut look, or let the vines grow to create a dramatic cascade of textured silver foliage.

Image of Polka Dot Plant
Polka Dot Plant

With dramatic leaves of green and white, the Polka Dot Plant adds brightness and texture with its irregularly patterned leaves. Truly a low-maintenance stunner, pinch stems back if they begin to get leggy. If you notice the variegation fading, move the plants to a brighter area with indirect light.

Image of Begonia

This Begonia develops larger leaves the older it gets, featuring deep green alongside silver variegation. The underside of the leaves and the stems are colored red for a subtle but dramatic flair. Older leaves occasionally yellow before they wither away, and can be cut off close to the stem to improve the appearance.
