With their dark, glossy, lace-like leaves and compact shape, China Doll Plants make attractive additions to any home.
China Doll Plants are in fact evergreen trees native to the subtropical regions of south-east Asia, specifically China and Taiwan. They are a part of the Bignoniaceae family, and in their ideal outdoor conditions they can grow up to 90’ tall. Indoors they tend to stay between 4’ to 6’ at mature height.
China doll plants need plenty of bright, but indirect, light. They need at least four to five hours of this kind of light a day. If the windows in your house are unable to provide suitable light, then you may want to use an artificial plant light to add additional light. They are also fussy about the temperature that they thrive in. These plants prefer to live in temperatures of 65-75 F. (18-24 C.). They will not tolerate drafts, so make sure that wherever you put your China doll, it remains free from drafts and wind. China doll plants need moist, but well drained, soil. Water when the soil on the top of the pot is dry to the touch. Be careful not to over-water the plant, as it does not like this and can develop root rot if left sitting in water due to poor drainage.
