Schismatoglottis Wallichii

799.00

Schismatoglottis is a genus of flowering plants in the family Araceae. Members of the genus are similar in appearance and growth habit to those of the genus Homalomena, but the two genera are not closely related. The primary difference is that the leaves of Schismatoglottis are not aromatic.

Characteristics:
The foliage have a oblong shape where the leaf contain wrinkles (fan like folds) with a heart shaped coloration light green band around the foliage perimeter. Truly it does have a beautiful ornamental feature and have a very stable structure where the leaves doesn’t get damaged by burns or bitten by pest.
LIGHT:
I find it works best in indirect bright light – the balance seemed to be very optimum for this one.
MEDIUM:
A Balance mix of potting mix together with sand (50%) to give the fast draining medium. Often I find this succumb to rot at the root base during long period of heavy rain at year end – I realized that this one can’t stand being too wet. However, it does bounce back once the rain season is over.
WATERING:
Adequate watering but not too much as it can root the rootball.
FERTILIZER:
I find the foliar liquid fertilizer works best for this of which I apply for all my foliage plants. This plant does grow slowly but once it established itself – I will span out wider to over all the ground areas and so do take note that space is needed for this one to stretch out.
PROPAGATION:
I find the best so far is pup division appearing from the base of the plant – new plantlets appears from there to form a new colony.
PEST:
I had come across mealy bugs & scale insect appearing on the back of it’s leaves but it easily eradicated by pruning and washing. I had stopped using pesticide in my garden as I don’t want to use any chemical in my garden. At best – I do look out to use home-made organic pesticide as I don’t want to disturb the ecology in my garden.
