Christia obcordata are a great addition to your garden for creating colour contrast. Otherwise known as a 'Butterfly Plant', they have striking red and green striped leaves which are triangular in shape resembling their namesake. They grow in an upright manner  and as they mature will grow multiple stems which make them bushier. They prefer full sun and only keep the red markings in this aspect. They don't like winter and will suffer if grown in temps lower than 15°C.

Light: Category x (please see our blog on plant light requirements)

Soil: Indoor mix (please see our blog on soil requirements)

Fertiliser: As directed on your fertiliser of choice. Fortnightly or monthly during the growing season

Watering: Don't over water, they like to dry out between waterings. 

Maintenance: Trim back to make the plant even bushier. 

Postage is a flat rate of $18, spend over $99 and it's free! Live plants can only be posted directly to NSW, ACT, QLD, VIC, SA. Plants can be sent to WA, NT and TAS via a plant concierge. Please see our blog on quarantine states for more information.

All plants pictured are considered an accurate representation of the plant you will receive. It represents the rough size, colour and condition. These are plants however and due to changes in climatic conditions and plant variation there will be minor differences.

We are now adding in 'Transport risk' in the product description as some plants are more delicate than others and/or find transport stressful. We will rate in terms of Low, Medium or High risk and discuss specifically to the plant in question. If this information is not provided yet please feel free to reach out via email to ask. Please also note that if plants are sent with new leaves that haven't had the chance to harden off they are susceptible to physical damage in transit as the slightest touch can cause it. 

Please note that we use 'Bugs for Bugs' regularly as a preventative control measure for pests. These predatory bugs are administered in vermiculite. This vermiculite is sprinkles onto the leaves and sometimes remains. 

We know that sometimes it's hard to get an idea of the size of the plant your are purchasing. Photos can make plants look bigger than they actually are. That's why we've made it easy. In each listing you will notice a photo with a background with lines drawn. These lines are distanced 5cm away from each other and the photographs are taken straight on with products against the wall. These photos will be the best indicator of size.
