Getting to Know Your Trending Tropicals® Plant

Getting to Know Your Trending Tropicals® Plant

Soil, container, care: here's what you need to know about your new plant. 

Congratulations for becoming the plant parent of a Trending Tropicals® houseplant!

Your new plant will add a beautiful element to your home and life. (See the whole Trending Tropicals® collection here.)

Here are some things you need to know about your plant.

YOUR PLANT'S SOIL: Your Trending Tropicals® plant is growing in a sustainable growing medium.

Your new plant is potted in a coir mixture, a sustainable potting medium.

Coir is made from coconut husks and provides a loose, nutritious growing medium for your new plant. Read more about sustainable coir here.

YOUR PLANT'S CONTAINER: Your Trending Tropicals® plant is growing in a pot within a pot.

Your plant is planted into a plastic pot with a drainage hole that fits inside a cachepot (that doesn’t have a drainage hole).

The purpose of this pot-within-a-pot design is to allow you to insert your plant into any decorative pot you like.

Because the interior pot has a drainage hole, you can water it and it will drain. This keeps the roots moist while preventing them from sitting in water.

Watering your Trending Tropicals® plant

It’s best practice to remove the interior pot to water your plant. You can set the plant in a sink so that the excess water can drain.

The cache pot keeps the furniture your plant is sitting on free of water drips.

Ready, set, decorate

Your new Trending Tropicals® plant is ready to become a decorating asset for your home. And your new best friend.

Place it in the right kind of light (read more about that here) and water regularly (read more about that here).

Enjoy your new plant! And remember we're here to help. Be sure to reach out to us at if you have any questions.
