Hi, I am
Hi, my name is Maya!
The plant experts also call me the Cestrum Elegans or the Bastard Jasmine. My flowers have a dark red color and will transform into red berries after blooming. You will enjoy my flowers until autumn.
My roots are in Central and South America, where I am an exuberant grower and bloomer in the wild. I love a warm and tropical climate, and therefore can grow up to 4 feet tall in these countries! I come in different colors, but here at Plantanious I only come in a deep red color.
Where should you place me?
I love heat, so I like to be in a light place. But be careful with the intense midday sun! I also like a sheltered spot.
What do I like?
Just give me a big gulp of water regularly! I like that. I also like a little fertilizer every week. Outside the flowering season, I need less water and no fertilizer.
Plantanious works together with the Work with Nature foundation. Our tropical rainforests are disappearing at a rapid pace and an enormous biodiversity is being lost along with the trees. If it were up to us, the jaguar would soon walk around again in the rainforest in Costa Rica protected by 'Adopt Rainforest'! The place where many of our special plants originate. In order to make an important contribution to the goal of the foundation - to protect 2,000 hectares of rainforest in the next ten years - we donate part of our turnover to protect part of the tropical rainforest. To achieve their goal, the foundation puts money into protection, conservation, reforestation, education and research.
