Java and New Guinea
A compact perennial plant with tightly packed growth. Green, white splashed foliage always has some brown at the edges. Best performance is when grown in full sun.
The plants grow well in both sun and partial shade, but the colors are more intense in full sun. Parrot leaf plants aren t picky about the soil as long as it is well-drained and not too rich.
Water the plants often enough to keep the soil from completely drying out. They generally don t need additional fertilizer, but if they aren t growing well, try giving them a shovelful of compost in summer.
Ideal for neat edging for borders or walkways . Works well as a container plant too.
Make sure watering is done once the soil goes dry. Although the soil can remain moist, but it should not turn soggy/wet. Having drainage hole in the pots goes a long way in ensuring there is no water stagnating on top of the soil. You can spray the plant occasionally.
Fertilise the plant once a month in summers however Don't feed any fertiliser in winters. Giving fertiliser to the plant ensures nutrients going in which keeps it healthy. Keep an eye on the leaves of the plant to know any symptoms for watering or sunlight.
