Looking after your Coral Berry Plant
Also known as a Coral Berry or ‘Christmas Berry’ because of its festive red berries, this Ardisia will bring a welcome splash of colour to a windowsill in the dark winter months.
Your Ardisia will do best in a bright spot indoors at normal room temperature. Be sure to keep your plant out of any draughts and not too close to a radiator, they are happiest at an even temperature. A windowsill is ideal, however avoid South facing windows with too much direct sunlight which could scorch your plant.
Keep your Ardisia well-watered, the compost should feel damp to the touch. Ardisia like humidity and will appreciate occasional misting with tepid water. These aren’t particularly greedy plants but can be given a feed with general houseplant food in the spring to top up nutrients.
The bright red berries should last the whole festive season and well into the new year but when they start to shrivel trim them off to make way for a fresh crop of flowers in the spring.
Brown tips to the leaves or shrivelled berries usually means your plant isn’t getting enough water. Make sure it isn’t placed too close to a radiator which will dry the soil out and water more regularly.
Please note these berries are for decoration only, do not consume, they are mildly toxic to humans and pets.
