Brown Stars have ten to twenty leaves, each with tiny teeth or thorns on their wavy margins. The leaves taper to a point at the end which gives the plant its pretty star shape. The plants can be striped in both ivory tones and various shades of Brown. A perfect choice for terrariums & fairy gardens.

Plant Essentials

Fertilizer/ feed for the plant:The earth star plant does not require a regular feed. Use a well-balanced fertiliser once a month during its active growing season.
Repotting : It’s a slow grower and does not require frequent repotting. Repot it once in two years in a fresh growing medium or when it outgrows the current pot.
Propogation : Earth star propagates by pups, plant the pups in a new planter once they reach one third the sice of the original plant.


Common Problems

1. What is the white cottony growth on my plant?
The earth star plant is susceptible to mealy bugs that appear as cottony growth on leaf surfaces and crevices. In case of an infestation clean the plant of visible bugs and spray with a pesticide to prevent further growth.
2. Why are the leaves turning lighter?
Too much light, especially direct sunlight causes the bleaching of leaves.
3. Why is my plant growing limp?
Although the earth star loves humidity, too much water causes root rot. Let your plant soil grow dry between waterings and drench completely when watering.


Style and Décor

Style and Décor

Light Requirements :The earth star does not like direct light, give it indirect light through the day or a few hours of dapled light in the mornings.
Locations :Earth star plants love humidity so well lit bathrooms, kitchens, or areas with indirect light are great. Avoid south-facing windows with harsh sunlight.
Styling/decor tip :Earth stars are great for sidetables and tabletops due to their compact low-growing nautre. They also grow very well in the humid environment of bathrooms and kitchens. Grow them in monchrome pots for a more modern aesthetic and quirky and contrasting planter for a fun vibe.
