Description

The china doll plant (Radermachera Sinica) is a fairly recent houseplant, having only been introduced since the early 1980s. It’s a fairly compact plant that has become very popular due to how tolerant it is of the warm, low-humidity air of most modern homes. It has medium to dark green glossy leaves that almost look a bit oily. The leaves are divided into separate leaflets and are generally thin and delicate looking. The blooms are white (but it rarely blooms in the home). China Dolls prefer to be somewhat root bound, so be really careful about re-potting them. It’s a plant that doesn’t like change very much either and re-potting it, moving it to another area or drafts may cause major leaf loss. If you do notice your plant losing most or all of its leaves, don’t despair! You can save it by trimming all of the stems down to around 1/2 their length and watering less. When the plant experiences a massive loss of leaves it’s very susceptible to root rot.​

Sunlight – China doll plants require lots of medium to bright indirect light in order to thrive indoors.

Watering – They should be watered once the top inch of soil is dry, the frequency of which will vary depending on the season and environment in your home.

Plant Care – During its growing period (spring and summer), your China doll plant should be fed monthly with a balanced liquid fertilizer that has been diluted by half. They appreciate being rootbound, so frequent repotting or disturbance can lead to leaf drop and a general failure to thrive.
