Coral Berry (Ardisia Crenata)

  • Ardisia crenata is a popular indoor plant most appreciated for its long-lasting bright red berries that are produced in large numbers at the bottom half of the plant.
  • When grown in a pot, it reaches a maximum height of only about 90cm (35 inches), with a spread of about 30-38cm (12-15 inches).
  • It has glossy, dark green leathery leaves up to 15cm (6 inches) long.
  • Thick clusters of star-shaped white or rose-pink flowers are produced usually in early summer.
  • These are followed by very decorative shiny berries that are held on nearly horizontal stalks.
  • The berries gradually take on a bright red color and normally persist on the plant until the flowering time the following year.
  • Perfect for this festive season!
SOIL
  • Ardisia crenata likes deep soil rich with lots of organic matter, but it can also thrive in almost any non-soggy soil.
FERTILIZER
  • Mulch around plants or allow leaves and other debris from overhead trees to fall down naturally around them.
LIGHT
  • Provide Ardisia crenata with a bright light at all times with several hours every day of direct sunlight.
  • In summer, Ardisia crenata can be moved outdoors on a part shade spot.
WATER
  • While plants are in active growth, water them plentifully as often as necessary to keep the potting mixture thoroughly moist.
  • During the rest period allow the top centimeter or so of the potting mixture to dry out between waterings if the plants are kept at normal room temperature.
  • If the temperature can be held below 15°C (59°F), however, water even more sparingly, allowing at least half the potting mixture to dry out between waterings.
