Ornithogalum Maculatum Care
Your Ornithogalum Maculatum will benefit from a light misting 1-2 times per week, especially in the winter, when the air is dry. Misting also helps keep the foliage clean and dust-free.
Bright conditions with shade is suitable for the Ornithogalum plant. Direct sunlight will damage the leaves.
Use a loose, quick-draining soil to prevent over-watering and root rot. If your regular soil seems heavy, add some sand.
A Ornithogalum Maculatum plant does well in temperatures between 45 °F- 80 °F (7.2 °C-26.7 °C).
Keep moist and evenly watered in summer, but more sparsely in winter. Relatively forgiving if you forget to water from time to time. Avoid excess moisture around the roots.
Use a diluted complete liquid fertilizer during the spring and summer when the plant is growing. Take a break from feeding the houseplant during the colder months.
Cutting and re-planting stem cuttings a couple of inches long is an easy method used. Apply root hormones and give it a few weeks for them to begin rooting.
