📚 Quisco Care Guide

Quisco details
💧️ Water - Low Water OR Medium Water
Low Water Needs

Quisco is fairly forgiving when it comes to missing a watering day. These plants don't require much oversight.

For Quisco, it is important to let the majority of the soil dry in between waterings. Be careful about overwatering your plant -- this can lead to fungal disease like root rot and pest infestations.

Growing Outdoors
If growing outdoors, you will want to plant Quisco in an area that receives morning sunlight that's not too harsh and afternoon shade for most natural light. You can consider East facing portions of your garden as those get more morning sun.

Growing Indoors
If growing indoors, you can place Quisco near an East-facing window that will receive morning sun for half of the day and afternoon shade.
You can also consider placing your Quisco a few feet away from a South-facing window for diffused light. However, be careful about placing in direct sunlight of a South-facing window as that can cause leaf scorch and affect growth. You can always diffuse the harsh light of a South-facing window by using a sheer curtain.
Moderate Water Needs
Quisco requires a moderate amount of water. You will want to allow the top few inches of soil dry in between waterings. As a general rule of thumb, depending on where you have planted and how much light your Quisco receives, you may need to water once a week.

Growing Indoors
If you are growing indoors or in a container, you can always check the moisture of the soil by using your thum or finger. Stick it in the soil -- if it is dry, then you will likely want to water your Quisco.

Pot selection is also important to keep your Quisco from getting too wet. It is important to select a pot with plenty of drainage holes as this will allow excess water to train out of the pot rather than to just sit on the bottom. Drainage holes also allow air to get into the soil from the bottom of the pot. Using a terracotta pot or another type of pot made of a permeable material can also help keepQuisco from getting too wet. Terracotta and other similar materials allow water to wick away from the soil faster than they would in a plastic pot.

Growing Outdoors
If you are growing Quisco outdoors, the amount of light your plant is receiving is key to determining how often to water your plant. Plants that require moderate water, generally do best if they can get some respite from the sun during the day as it can dry out the soil fairly quickly. If you have planted in a sunny area, you will likely need to water this plant more often than if it is planted in a shady area. The type of soil you plant in is also important. Sandy and loamy soils tend to dry out much quicker. You can always amend soil with organic material such as peat moss or compost to encourage moisture retention.

☀️ Light - Direct Sun OR Diffused Light
Direct Sunlight (Full Sun)
Quisco thrives best in direct sunlight or full sun meaning that it loves at least 6-8 hours of bright direct light.

If growing outdoors, you will want to plant Quisco in an area that receives sunlight throughout the day. If growing indoors, place near a South-facing window for ideal conditions. South-facing windows receive the most amount of direct light everyday.
Bright Indirect Light or Partial Sun
Quisco can grow in bright indirect light which means it prefers at least 4-6 hours of diffused natural light (ideally 6 hours).
Growing Outdoors
When plants thrive in bright, indirect light only this means that you will want to avoid exposing them to direct sunlight unlessQuisco is also explicitly noted to tolerate direct sunlight.

If growing outdoors, you will want to plant Quisco in an area that receives morning sunlight that's not too harsh and afternoon shade for most natural light. You can consider East facing portions of your garden as those get more morning sun.
Growing Indoors
If growing indoors, you can place near an East-facing window that will receive morning sun for half of the day and afternoon shade. You can also consider placing a few feet away from a South-facing window for diffused light.

🌎 Hardiness Zone
Hardiness zones (or Grow Zones) are areas where Quisco is able to grow outdoors year round.
If you are located outside of the specified grow zones, you will need to bring your plant indoors during cooler months if you are growing outside. We recommend growing in a container or indoors.


Zone 10A
30 to 35 F
Zone 10B
35 to 40 F
Zone 11
40 to 50 F
Zone 10A
Zone 10 offers warm temperatures making this zone great for flowers, succulents, and heat-tolerant plants. You may have to be careful with cold-hardy plants and more tender plants like herbs.Most regions in this Zone have humid conditions throughout the year making it a welcoming habitat for many tropical plants.
First Frost:
Early to mid-December is the typical time-frame, but can go as late as late December.

Last Frost:
Late January is the typical time-frame, but at times it can go up to as laste as first week of February.
