Cryptanthus Rubin Star

Boasts a star-like shape also known as the Starfish Plant!

Forming a star-like shape with its layers of tapered leaves, it’s no wonder that Cryptanthus 'Rubin Star' has become known as Starfish Plant and Earth Star. This vibrant tropical variety makes a fantastic, low-maintenance house plant, providing some bold colour to your home decor with its bright pink hue. Adapted to tropical, humid climates, it is perfectly happy in a warm, bright position in the home. The ideal room would be a bathroom or kitchen with a minimum temperature of 15C (60F). They also make reptile and amphibian safe additions to vivarium’s and terrariums. To help with the humidity mist them regularly with rainwater.

Water regularly to maintain evenly moist soil. Reduce watering in the winter months, but do not let the compost dry out completely. Feed regularly between March and September when they are inactive growth. Use a heavily diluted solution of a balanced fertiliser.
Height: 15cm (6”). Spread: 20cm (8”).

Please note: Some houseplants are toxic to pets if ingested, please seek advice from a veterinary professional if you believe it has been consumed. Ensure you take a sample of the plant with you. The size of the plant will differ depending on when in the year it is purchased – visuals are an indication only.
