Say Hello to Your Newest Cleaning Ally

If you want your clusia plant to thrive it's very, very simple. Start by giving your clusia's roots regular amounts of water, especially during the hottest months of summer, as dehydration can quickly be noticed in plants. The more hydration and love you give your clusia, the more purified air she'll give you in return.

A Real-Time Cleaning Machine

Just like many plants, clusia is a real cleaning machine. One of the greatest benefits of having her around is she neutralizes harmful substances by absorbing them and breaking them down in her roots. Clusia is known for cleansing toxic air particles by converting CO2 into oxygen, and as a bonus, she's fully in charge of regulating the humidity in any given space through her evaporation process. Just note that overwatering your clusia plant is not good! If you give her too much H2O, the plant will warn you by showing yellow or brown spots on her leaves. PS: That's your signal to give her a little less water.

A Modest Plant for Every Plant Lover

Clusia is known to be a modest plant. Why? She does not scream in flashy colors to get your attention, and the best part of all, she is not very big either so she'll be in nobody's way. Clusia has one goal in her plant life and it is doing the job she knows best: cleaning the house and being pretty in green. That's why clusia is perfect for any kind of room, office, or indoor space that are lacking pure air.

As if it couldn't get any better with clusia, she will also do a great job being the silent eye-catcher in your shop window while showing how green and modern your shop is. As long as the place is not too light or too dark, you will never hear the Clusia Princess complain.

Dare to Sell More Plants

Florists are bound to sell flowers, right? This is only partially true. Amongst a growing number of generally younger people, there is an awareness of the positive assets and benefits plants give us. This is why floral professionals dare you to put more plants on your shop's front to capture at first sight the attention of your customers. Always remember, don't just show the biggies, make room for the cute ones too, like the Clusia Princess.
