Give them a mist every few days to keep their leaves nice and fresh. Or give them a spot in the bathroom.
Wallace likes to be watered when the top two inches of soil feel dry. The others can dry out between drinks.
Growing quickly requires sunlight. These plants like a bright spot, but out of direct sun. They’ll grow slower in shade.
It’s really important to feed your plants if you want them to grow fast. Give them liquid fertiliser once per month in spring and summer. No need in winter.

About the fast-growing set
The bigger the plant, the greater the joy. If you want plants that will fill your home with green as quickly as possible, these are your guys. They’re all really fast growers, if you treat them well. Give them plenty of light, the right amount of water, and an occasional feed and you’ll have a jungle before you know it.
The set without pots includes:
Rapunzel – Popularly known as the golden pothos, she has mottled leaves and thick, bushy growth. She can cope with any level of light, but if you want her to grow quickly put her somewhere bright.
Penny – The Chinese money plant has adorable round leaves. She likes fairly bright light, so put her somewhere quite near a window.
Peggy – The string-of-hearts’ sweet heart-shaped leaves grow on long stems. You can put her on a high shelf and let her cascade toward the ground. She’ll grow as long as you allow.
Wallace – When he arrives, this monstera adansonii will have a compact bushy shape. In no time at all, he’ll grow long vines covered in handsome leaves. Hang him from the ceiling, put him on a shelf, or trim him back if you want to keep that compact shape.
The set with pots also includes:
Clay pots - We love the beautiful texture of these fibreclay pots. The contemporary shape and natural material will fit into any home.
