How to look after a parrott plant



Well, from what I can find out, it needs about the same care as Busy Lizzies indoors:

Bright indirect light, morning sun, or filtered sun.

No temps less than 7.5 deg. C, or more than 35 deg.

Regular watering, but let the top 1/2 cm dry between soakings.

Regular feeding.

Humidity around 40%.

If it's getting really tall and ragged, it can have selective pruning to make it more compact, but without removing more than 1/3 of the foliage.

The beaks should come back soon--it's an evergreen tropical plant that blooms year-round.
