In a world where technology reigns, it’s nothing out of the ordinary to be surrounded by electronics. Our homes are filled with tech-items that apart from doing us good when we want to take care of tasks in a timely manner, like doing shopping, looking for information, or paying the bills, they also do us bad in draining the energy. Of course you still want to keep your gadgets and stuff, but if you’re looking for a way to refresh that energy, seek the help of plants.

Since our dear country is known for its specific (harsh) weather conditions, there are certain plants that would be more suitable than others. There’s one plant in particular that’s granted its presence and beauty in our country, called Cordyline. If you want to choose from the best cordyline for sale, make sure you find a reliable nursery that tends well to plants’ needs, and can give you bits of advice on how to take care of it.

The fact these plants (plural since there are many types, such as Electric Pink, Electric Star, Red Star to name a few) are ideal to breathe life into your indoor or outdoor space is they are considered to be part of the plants that bring luck in feng shui (represents the element of fire), and are sacred in Hawaii. Their tropical-like appearance, with colours distinctive for every type (from green, to red, and purple leaves, and red, or yellow flowers) is sure to amp up the aesthetics of your home, regardless whether it’s the interior or your outdoor area.

Once you’ve made your choice from the variety of cordyline for sale, make sure you get all the information as to how to best take care of this gorgeous palm-like plant; you wouldn’t want to kill off a lucky plant, right? It’s important to inform the nursery where you intend to plant the cordyline, the indoors or outdoors, as there are different requirements. For one, they are tropical plants so they do require all the warmth they can get. Two, don’t overwater them as it can kill off the roots.

Outside you can plant them in full-sun spots, and partial shades, with the only difference being they require more watering when in full sun. In the case of cold tolerant variants, they do well with less watering. As for the indoor cordylines, they’d thrive best in spots where there’s no direct sunlight. It would be good to include fertilising in your chores, and perhaps if you have more time to spare, and want to go organic, prepare your own compost. Do a bit of search, and you might find some more gardening advice about your cordylines.
