HAWAIIAN TI CARE.
Hawaiian Ti are colorful, easy to grow plants that are indoor hardy and require very little attention. Hawaiian Ti are excellent houseplants that withstand more neglect than almost any other plant. In the landscape Hawaiian Ti grow happily in a pot or when planted directly in the ground. They add a colorful accent to any outdoor space, garden or patio. In cooler zones a containerized Hawaiian Ti can be relocated indoors for the winter months.
When you receive your new Hawaiian Ti, there is no need to worry about planting right away. Your new plant can be stored for a while by simply placing it in a bucket with about a half inch of water and moving it to a shady location, simply water when dry. This will give you plenty of time to select the ideal location for your new Hawaiian Ti.
All Hawaiian Ti varieties grow very well in containers, indoors or on the patio. Smaller varieties grow best indoors in 8″ to 10″ diameter pots while larger varieties need enough room for growth, generally a 10″ to a 20″ diameter, 18″ deep container will suffice. Remember the looser the roots, the taller and healthier your Hawaiian Ti will be. When the plant becomes root bound its growth will slow, at that point it is time for a larger pot.
Hawaiian Ti enjoy a well drained, general purpose potting mix easily found at your local box store. Remember try to stay away from arid or wet, mucky soils.
To help establish your new Hawaiian Ti, fertilize sparingly a few inches away from the base, tri-annually with a slow time released product. Unfertilized they will tend to grow at a slower pace. Note: The heavy salts in cheaper fertilizers will damage the roots and possibly kill the plant. Its best to use a brand you know and trust.
GROW ZONE & LIGHT.
Best outdoors if grown in zone 9b-11, find your zone here. This Hawaiian Ti requires 80-90% sunlight. Depending on your location partial sun is often best. In the northern end of their grow zone Hawaiian Ti should be brought indoors or protected during the winter months. The patio zone is 4b-11 which means the potted plant will flourish over the summer months in colder zones but must be brought inside before winter.
BEFORE YOU PLANT OUTDOORS.
At the nursery these Hawaiian Ti are grown under 20-40% shade cloth. If you plant this Hawaiian Ti in a brightly lit area you may experience leaf burn. It is best to acclimate this plant to its environment by keeping it outside and slowly moving it into a sunny area over a week or two to avoid stress before planting.
WHAT IS THE SHIPPING SIZE.
All Hawaiian Ti for sale will vary in size. In the spring, plants are often smaller than plants shipped in the fall. Plants designated with a sku ending in -4, -6 or -8 will arrive in a standard 4 inch, 6 inch or 8 inch round growers pot respectively. Our new, reusable, recyclable deep plugs are 7 or 9 inches deep and 2 or 2.5 inches in width. Products growing in these pots are easy to transplant and allow for deeper roots and faster growth, they are designated with a sku ending in -7 or -9. (Note: The item sku number can be found just below the buy button.) The color and style of these pots may vary. If we are out of a particular size item, we may ship a larger size at no additional charge. For more information, click the “best packaging” link at the bottom of this page.
Note: Before leaving, Hawaiian Ti plants are inspected, watered, and pruned. Larger plants, generally those that ship in 8″ pots, will be topped to 36″ or 48″ overall, depending on the variety, if necessary, to facilitate shipping. Your new plants’ pot is then bagged to ensure that the soil stays in the pot and not loose in the box. Plants are tissue or kraft paper wrapped and generally secured in place with natural biodegradable peanuts.
