A Unique House Plant with Vibrant Orange Color
The Mandarin Plant is simply stunning. Also known as the Fire Flash for its vivid orange hue, the Mandarin Plant's fern-like foliage and bright orange stems will add a tropical flair to your house plant collection.
A member of the Spider Plant family, the Mandarin Plant is a sub-tropical plant native to East Africa. It will thrive equally in warm, humid climates and indoor spaces - its compact mature size means it's perfect for window sills, wide mantles, and tabletops.
The best part? This plant delivers big impact without the work - it's easier to care for than many other tropical plants. Although the Mandarin Plant likes bright, indirect light, it can tolerate partial shade, and it's a great choice for expert growers and plant beginners alike. Just keep it away from kids and pets, as the Mandarin Plant's leaves can be toxic.

Planting & Care
1. Planting: Your Mandarin Plant will grow best in bright, indirect light, and can tolerate some shade. The best place for your plant is near an east-facing window that is free from drafts. Keep it away from bright, direct light, which can burn its leaves.
You won't need to repot your Mandarin Plant originally - it will be happy in it's shipped container. When your plant's roots are starting to grow out the bottom of the pot or above the soil on top, it's time to repot. Choose a pot 1-2 sizes larger than the original container, with good drainage, and plant with organic potting soil.
2. Watering: Your Mandarin Plant prefers consistently moist - but not soggy - soil. You can use your finger to test the moisture level. If the soil feels dry, add water. It's good practice to test the moisture level every week during the plant's young life.
FGT Tip: Occasionally, your Mandarin Plant's leaves may become brown at the tip. If this happens, switch to distilled water. The fluoride in tap water can increase the salt intake, causing the tips of the leaves to turn brown. However, this is not dangerous for the plant, and you can simply prune off the brown tips.
3. Fertilizing: You can add a general house plant fertilizer to your Mandarin Plant every three months, but it is not necessary.
FGT Tip: Mandarin Plant leaves do collect dust, so be sure to keep your tree healthy by wiping down the leaves as needed with a dust cloth.
