Drimia Maritima Care
The humidity for the Drimia Maritima is just as important as water and light requirements. Simply put, the higher the humidity, the better. Mist your plant a couple of times per week. Brown tips on the plant will signify that the humidity is too low.
Your Drimia Maritima will flourish in low to indirect bright light. In fact, the lower light helps maintain the dramatic lime coloring. When it resides in bright indirect light, the leaves will be a bit lighter in color. Bleached leaves indicate the plant is getting too much light.
A fast draining potting soil mix is best to use.
Usual household temperatures between 65°- 80°F (18.3°-26.7°C). are fine for a Drimia Maritima. Keep the leaves of Drimia Maritima away from cold windows, air conditioners, and heaters.
Water your plant thoroughly and allow the top 75% of the soil to dry before watering again. In low light, allow the soil to dry completely before watering. Water your plant less in the winter, when light levels are lower and growth has slowed. Overwatering will cause leaves to turn yellow and fall off, as well as root rot, and the eventual death of the plant.
Fertilize monthly with a balanced plant food diluted 1/2 the recommended strength. Drimia Maritima plants need food only when they are actively growing. Feeding too often causes the tips of the leaves to turn brown.
You can use Stem Cuttings.
