GENERAL CARE

Micky’s minis continues to offer more plants with our unique soilless growth medium. This medium is specially designed to enhance the quality and shelflife of our miniature plants. Shipping with our soil us medium also eliminates loose dirt in the box from rough shipping conditions

By avoiding the normal causes that are detrimental to plants (i.e. excessive hot or cold temperatures, drafts, etc.) your customer should find much enjoyment from their Miniature Potted Plants. Remember, it is very easy to over water miniature potted plants. Therefore it is best to set them in  a pan of lukewarm water for about 10 to 20 minutes.  Then let the plant drain for 5 minutes before placing it back in its favorite spot. Most minis will require watering every 2 or 3 days depending on how hot and dry it is.

If your mini is grown in the foam medium, never let the foam go completely dry.  If it becomes hard, place the miniature plant in a pan of warm water for 30 to 60 minutes or until it starts to rehydrate.  Depending on how long the foam has been dry will determine if the plant can come back.
