Grevillea, also known as Silky Oak, is adapted as a low growing houseplant. Plant in a medium to large container and place in a sunny, well-lit window with plenty of air circulation. Grevillea is very drought tolerant, check your soil moisture regularly to make sure you don’t overwater. Prune after flowering and feed with a low phosphorus granular fertilizer in the spring. If you’re looking for a great houseplant, this is the one for you.
