Getting to know your

Earth Star

Ursula is one of the most unique and easy to care for houseplants out there. Seriously, leave her alone, she is not big on a lot of attention. She does eventually flower, when she so chooses and can reach up to two feet across in size. Most often, she will never need to be repotted. She likes to live in natural light conditions, so put her in a window and she will thrive. If she is getting pale, she needs more light. When watering, avoid getting water on her leaves as it may cause weird fungal spots on her leaves and most of all she HATES to be overwatered. She is also safe for cats, but has delicate leaves, so try to keep your animals away from her. Depending on her location, she may not require a watering every week. Only water when the top of her soil gets dry. Included in this kit is soil made just for her that is quick draining, so make sure you keep a coaster under him or water him in the sink. Another added perk - she purifies your air from many common toxins.
