How to Grow and Care
They require bright indirect sunlight and require well-drained soil (free-draining gritty mix). Overly bright sunlight can char the leaves and cause them to drop off. They thrive in gritty, well-draining soils and pots with drainage holes. Never over water, water only once a week. Elephant Bush plants in the home interior should not have consistently wet feet. Make sure the pot drains well and don't leave a saucer with water sitting under the container or saucer.
** Protect from heavy rains and standing water to prevent rot.
