Care Guide for Ehretia Plant

Light

  • Sunlight: Ehretia plants generally prefer full sun to partial shade. They can tolerate a range of light conditions but typically thrive in bright, indirect light.

Watering

  • Watering Needs: Water your Ehretia plant regularly during the growing season (spring and summer), allowing the top inch of soil to dry out between waterings. Reduce watering in the winter, but do not let the soil dry out completely.

Soil

  • Well-Draining Soil: Use a well-draining potting mix or garden soil. Ehretia plants prefer slightly acidic to neutral soil pH. Good drainage is essential to prevent waterlogging, which can lead to root rot.

Temperature and Humidity

  • Temperature: Ehretia plants generally prefer warm temperatures. Protect them from cold drafts and temperatures below 50°F (10°C), as they are typically not frost-tolerant.
  • Humidity: These plants can tolerate average indoor humidity levels but appreciate occasional misting, especially in dry indoor environments.

Fertilizing

  • Fertilizer: Feed with a balanced fertilizer diluted to half strength every 4-6 weeks during the growing season (spring and summer). Reduce feeding in fall and winter when growth slows.

Pruning

  • Pruning: Trim back any leggy or damaged growth as needed to maintain the plant’s shape and encourage bushier growth. Ehretia plants respond well to pruning to control size and promote denser foliage.

Repotting

  • Repotting: Repot your Ehretia plant every 1-2 years in spring or early summer, or when it becomes root-bound. Choose a slightly larger pot with fresh potting mix suitable for woody plants.

Common Problems

  • Pests: Watch for common pests such as aphids, spider mites, and scale insects. Treat infestations promptly with insecticidal soap or neem oil.
  • Leaf Yellowing: Can be caused by overwatering, underwatering, or nutrient deficiencies. Adjust watering habits and consider fertilizing if necessary.

Additional Tips

  • Support: Provide support such as stakes or trellises for climbing varieties of Ehretia plants.
  • Propagation: Propagate Ehretia plants from stem cuttings or seeds. Take stem cuttings with several nodes and root them in moist soil or water.
