How to care for your Euonymus
Use these instructions to care for an Euonymus. This guide will tell you how to water an Euonymus; its light, temperature, humidity preferences and any additional care it might need to help it grow.
Your euonymus will love bright, indirect sunlight. Avoid placing it in direct sunlight as this may cause the leaves to burn and turn white. Eastern exposure or a few feet back from a southern or western window is ideal.
Water when 50% of the soil volume is dry. Water thoroughly until you see it flow out of the drainage hole. Discard any excess water to avoid root rot. Your euonymus needs less water during the winter dormant season.
The leathery leaves of the euonymus plant can adapt to dry air, making it a great houseplant. However, your plant won’t mind added humidity especially in the winter months.
Euonymus plants do well in temperatures between 60-85°F.
During the spring and summer, fertilize with a well-balanced fertilizer once a month.
The euonymus plant is toxic to humans and pets if ingested.
Once the blooms begin to wilt and die off in the fall and winter, you can prune them to maintain a nice shape. The Euonymus will need trimming from time to time. This should keep them full of leaves instead of looking leggy.
