How To Care For Your Orange Star Plant?
There are many things that you need to consider when caring for your orange star plant. Here are some tips to make sure that your orange star plant thrives:
Watering – Watering your orange star plant every few days will ensure that it doesn’t get too dry. Also, avoid letting the soil become completely dry. Too much moisture could cause the roots to rot and even kill the plant!
Light – Place your orange star plant in a well-lit area. The more light it gets the better. However, make sure that the plant isn’t in direct sunlight all day, as this could burn the leaves and cause it to wilt.
Temperature – The ideal temperature for your orange star plant is about 18 degrees Celsius. Orange star plants can survive in different temperatures, but as a general rule they do best when the temperature is on the warmer side.
Soil – Orange star plants do best when their soil is allowed to dry out in-between watering. If you can squeeze the soil in your hand and it sticks together then you can water it. Do not over water your plant.
Fertilizer – Fertilize your orange star plant every couple of months. Just a little bit will do, too much fertilizer can burn the roots of your plant.
Propagating Orange Star Plant
Propagating orange star plant is very easy to do. When propagating orange star plant, take a look at the roots of a smaller plant in your pot. At the base of these roots will be a bulb. This is known as the “neck”.
This is what you need to take in order to propagate new orange star plants.
Wrap up the neck in a damp piece of cloth and place this in a plastic bag. Once you have done this, tie the bag shut and place it in the fridge for 2 days. After the two days have passed, the neck should have sprouted small root systems. At this point place it in some potting soil and give it lots of light.
It will take a while for your plant’s to grow but once they get going they’ll grow very quickly indeed. Just make sure that they still get plenty of light and water, and your new orange star plants will soon be thriving in no time.
Another way to propagate your orange star plant is to simply plant more seeds. You can get these from the fruit that grows on the plant. Once you cut open the fruit you will see lots of little seeds. Don’t eat these, instead just plant them in some soil and wait for them to grow.
These seeds will take a little longer to grow than the bulbs, but they will still grow and thrive if you treat them right. Once they get going they’ll grow like weeds and before you know it you’ll have lots of orange star plants!
You can also do both of these methods. Once you have one or two orange star plants growing in your home, go out and collect some of their fruit (or flower). Then just follow the steps above to grow more orange star plants. This is a great way of having a steady supply of orange star plants for your consumption needs.
Word of Caution: While orange star plant is considered by many to be a “safe” drug, it really isn’t. In large quantities it can cause vomiting, dizziness, unconsciousness and even death. Also, many people are allergic to it. Always start with a small amount and wait at least an hour before consuming more.
Always be careful when taking in drugs or medicines that aren’t prescribed to you. When growing your own orange star plant always make sure you do so safely.
