Its cheerful and fresh green leaves make it a striking appearance within our assortment. It is an easy to maintain plant, which will satisfy even the least green fingers. It can even produce small white flowers, for which you hardly need to do anything. It also appears that the Centella has medicinal properties, but more about that later. Because of its manageable pot size, the Centella fits in almost any living room or office. It is also a plant that will not grow much larger in the short term, so you as owner will have a lot of fun with its daily use. We offer the Centella complete with a (waterproof) terra cotta pot, packed in a trendy sleeve, which not only offers decoration but also protection during transport and easily lists the care for the customer.
The Centella can be placed both inside and outside. Just avoid direct sunlight, which they generally find less fun. A spot in the semi-shade is ideal.
Put the Centella in a light spot and water it about 1 or 2 times a week. Make sure that the soil does not dry out.
Always repot the Centella in the spring, so that the plant still has enough time to recover from any damage.
The Centella originates from Southeast Asia.
If the Centella suffers from vermin, it is recommended to control it as soon as possible with a biological or if desired a chemical pesticide.
Centella has been used in Indian medicine for over 3000 years for its medicinal properties. It is perhaps considered the most medicinal plant in southeast Asia. The diversity of conditions for which the plant is used is enormous.
The extracts of the plant have now also been developed in modern homeopathy in such a way that it is frequently used for many different inconveniences. However, calming the skin and reducing scars is what the extracts are most commonly used for. However, we advise you not to consume this plant, as it has not been proven that eating the Centella has the same effect. The plant can also cause side effects if it is not consumed properly.
