How to care for your Ant Plant
Use these instructions to care for an Ant Plant. This guide will tell you how to water an Ant Plant; its light, temperature, humidity preferences and any additional care it might need to help it grow.
Your Ant Plant will prefer indirect bright light. Too much light will scorch the leaves, but it will not tolerate low light conditions.
Water only when 50-75% of the soil volume is dry. This succulent-like plant does not tolerate soggy soil. Always water thoroughly and discard any excess water in the saucer.
Your Ant Plant does fine in average household humidity, but provide extra humidity if the air gets too dry.
Your Ant Plant prefers temperatures between 65-85°F.
Feed once in the spring and once in the summer with a general-purpose fertilizer at half strength. Always fertilize on damp soil. No fertilizer is needed in the fall and winter.
This plant is considered toxic to humans and pets if ingested.
The Ant Plant’s base is hollow with sticky sap, which makes them the perfect symbiotic partner for ants in the jungle. Not to worry, they won’t invite these guests into your home!
