Tips for Success:

• Place in good light; some direct sunlight is needed.
• Accurate watering – Bring plant to a slight wilt between
  waterings.

• Moderate fertilizer once a month. Stop fertilizer in the winter.
• Keep humidity above 50% and night temperatures above
  60-65ºF.

• Growth cycle slows and stops for 2-3 months in the winter.
  Plants can lose some leaves during this resting period.
  This is normal. Continue normal watering.

• Use terra cotta or clay pots.
• Keep an eye out for mildew to which Rexes have some
  susceptibility.


Treating Mildew

• Identify - Appears as a white powder on the surface of the
  leaves, usually at the change of seasons.
• Treatment - Apply a baking soda solution -1Tbl/quart with a
  dribble of dishwashing detergent.
• Application - Spray at first signs and reapply every other day for
  4-5 applications.
• Prevention - Spray once every 3 months. Pure Neem Oil is
  effective on mildew.
