4in Chinese Doll
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 overwater the plant, as it does not like this and can develop root rot if left sitting in water due to poor drainage. This plant should not be repotted, as it grows best when its roots are rootbound. The most important thing to keep in mind is that China doll plants do not like change. A change in light, water, temperature, or repotting the plant will cause a massive leaf drop. If your China doll plant does drop its leaves, don’t panic. They will grow back if proper steps are taken. The first thing you should do is trim the remaining stems back by two-thirds to one-half. Cut back watering some to help prevent root rot, which is something this plant is particularly susceptible to in this state. Regular pruning is also a part of how to care for a China doll plant. The China doll plant may be a little on the finicky side, but they are certainly lovely plants that will add to the beauty of your home.
