Indoor Placement: The plants like bright, indirect light. Please "add light" with a grow-bulb - find ones to fit into your regular lamps at your local hardware store. Do not let the soil dry completely out between watering. Pot needs a drainage hold for the excess water to escape.
Outdoor Placement: Part shade, bright shade or cool sun. This combination is hardy to about 0F or above freezing.
About the Plants
The plants are chosen to work in the same pot, or beside each other in a lightly shaded garden bed. The matching miniature bedding plants are coordinated with the tree for color, climate and texture. They can last in an 8 to 10" deep pot for up to five years. Bedding plants may need dividing after 2 to 3 years.
