Care Astelia X Nervosa "Red Shadow":

The Astelia "Red Shadow" uses little water, but it is important that the soil does not dry out. With too much water (wet feet) root rot can occur.

Astelia can be fertilized every two weeks during the summer months with a light fertilizer. Fertilization is hardly necessary in autumn and winter. Growth then slows down and the plant consumes few nutrients.

The Astelia is sensitive to wet feet. If your Astelia gets brown leaves, this is most likely because it has its feet in the water. Yellowish leaves that droop are often a sign that the plant finds it a little too light in its current location. You can safely cut off brown leaves.

Shipping times may differ due to the large quantity of orders and weather conditions. During the cold months we send our plants with a Heat Pack if needed. We keep a close eye on the weather forecasts. 

Due to the large quantity of orders, adding plants to existing orders is not possible.

ATTENTION; We pack and ship our plants very carefully, damage to a leaf or discoloration is not covered by the guarantee.

Nelumbogarden packs and ships its plants very carefully. We use sturdy cardboard boxes and pack with kraft paper. It is possible for soil to fall out of the pot or a leaf to break during transport. We do not guarantee these two points. We ask you to open the box carefully and not with a knife or sharp object. Carefully remove the (kraft) paper. Some plants lower their leaves in the dark, these are restored within a few days. Due to changes in the season, the plants may differ from the plant shown in the photo.

Our company does not work with chemical pesticides. We pack our plants in recycled material, we limit the use of plastic to a minimum.
