Myrtle Topiary Small
S U N L I G H T
Provide the brightest possible light at all times. If these plants are placed more than a foot away from a fully sunlit window, they are likely to become spindly. Turn them regularly to avoid lopsided growth.

You can never allow your Myrtle to dry out! This plant will need a water every other day or so depending on how dry your home is. The best way to water your Myrtle is to fill a bucket with water and fully submerge in water. Once it stops bubbling you know it has taken in the water it needs. Allow to drain in the sink before putting it back in your decorative pot.

Your Myrtle will want a little more humidity than what is naturally present in your home, so it’s a good idea to set up a humidifier close to your Myrtle.
If you don't have a humidifier at home you can also sprits the leaves of the tree to give the tree the humidity it needs.

Do not feed these plants until they have been lodged in the same pot for more than three months. After that you can apply Kelpman Specialty Fertilizer once every two weeks during the active growth period only.

Pruning requires a sharp pair of scissors; place the topiary on a lazy Susan if you have one and spin it around to make sure all sides are trimmed evenly. Trimming back stray branches and half to three-quarters of the new growth will allow the topiary to look fresh and full.
