Humidity

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.

Light

Bright conditions with shade is suitable for the Ornithogalum plant. Direct sunlight will damage the leaves.

Soil

Use a loose, quick-draining soil to prevent over-watering and root rot. If your regular soil seems heavy, add some sand.

Temperature

A Ornithogalum Maculatum plant does well in temperatures between 45 °F- 80 °F (7.2 °C-26.7 °C).

Watering

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.

Fertilizing

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.

Propagation

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.
