What plants are in those hanging woks?
The White Hart central courtyard is an amazing space for everyone lucky enough to use it. Here at Plantation we like to keep this space feeling lush with flora for the public to enjoy. One of the most unique aspects of this space are the hanging planted woks. These woks are packed with plants and carefully maintained to ensure, as time goes on, they become even more stunning.
Below is a selection of the plants that are currently in the woks. If you have any further questions please feel free to pop into Plantation Design House for a chat forgive them a call.
Cymbidium spp (Boat orchid)
Light: Ideally your orchid should get some morning or afternoon sun. Try to avoid direct mid-day sun.
Watering: Water the plant 2-3 times in the summer and less in the colder months. Aim to keep the soil moist.
Fertiliser: During spring and summer give you plant a high nitrogen fertiliser for quick growth. In winter use a low nitrogen fertiliser to help the bulbs ripen and create the flower spikes.
Philodendron ‘Rojo congo’ (Philodendron)
Light: Grow in indirect sunlight. Hot direct sunlight will scorch the leaves.
Watering: Allow the top 50% of the soil to dry out before watering your philodendron.
Fertiliser: Fertilise your plant monthly during the growing season.
Anthurium andraeanum (Flamingo flower)
Light: Bright indirect sunlight.
Watering: Spray your plant or place a tray of water underneath it to help create humidity for the plant. Keep the soil moist over spring and summer and a bit drier over winter.
Fertiliser: Use a high phosphorus fertiliser every week in spring and summer.
Gibasis pellucida (Bridal veil)
Light: Bright indirect light.
Watering: Do not over water your bridal veil otherwise the roots will rot. Instead wait till it is almost completely dry and then water it thoroughly.
Fertiliser: Fertilise during spring and summer. Dilute the fertiliser to ¼ what is recommended to ensure you don’t burn the roots.
Monstera deliciosa (Fruit salad plant)
Light: Gentle indirect sunlight.
Watering: Thoroughly wet the soil and let most of it dry out before you water it again. The plant will need more water in the hotter months.
Fertiliser: Use liquid fertiliser once a month during the growing season.
Nephrolepis exaltata (Boston Fern)
Light: Indirect moderate light.
Water: Keep the soil moist. Create humidity around the plant with a misting bottle or with a tray of water underneath.
Fertiliser: The Boston fern does not need to be fertilised often, 2-3 times a year should be enough.
Asparagus densiflorus (Asparagus fern)
Light: Full sun or light shade.
Water: Water you plant once the soil becomes dry.
Fertiliser: Use an all-purpose liquid fertiliser. Fertilise every few weeks in the warmer months and every 3 months in autumn and winter.
