Caring for Zoe

Light

Medium light, do not expose to direct sunlight. This plant is used to growing under dense jungle shade. 

Water & humidity

Water often in summer, keeping the soil moist but not soggy. Let the top layer of soil dry out in winter. This plant needs high humidity and will benefit from being near a humidifer or being misted regularly. Humidity & warmth is key to success with this plant. Read our tips here

Feeding

Once a month in summer with organic fertiliser.

Re-potting

Every two years in spring. Mix 1/3 regular potting soil with 1/3 peat moss and 1/3 pumice stones. This mix ensures good drainage while still retaining moisture. Or use our Hemp Super Soil!

Atrium Top Tip

Prune regularly to keep its bushy appearance. Don't be surprised if the vines start clinging and climbing up anything around it. 

Quirky plant fact

Cissus plants are part of the Grape Family (Vitaceae), hence those vining curly tendrils! The name 'Cissus' comes from the Greek word meaning Ivy.
