As a houseplant, it's loved for its no-fuss nature. Oyster plant is one of the houseplants that basically just needs regular water to look fantastic. Because it's a relatively low plant, oyster plant is perfect for desks, tabletops, and other surfaces; it's a fun addition to kitchens, bedrooms, and dens.

Plant Care tips

  • Lighting: This plant prefers medium indirect sunlight but can survive in low light situations.
  • Temperature:  Ideally, it should be in the temperature range of 65° F to 80° F at all times.
  • Fertilizing: Feed your plant once or twice a year in the spring and summer with a basic houseplant food at half the recommended strength.
  • Watering: Water the plant thoroughly and allow the top 75% of the soil to dry before watering again. Allow the soil to dry completely before watering if the plant is placed in low light. Water your plant less in the winter, when light levels are lower and growth has slowed. Overwatering will cause leaves to turn yellow and fall off.
