Question: Care of a china doll plant, especially lighting. Which area of the room is best?

Answer: China Doll is Radermachera. It has shiny, deeply-veined leaflets with long tapering points and when conditions are just right, it develops tiny blue flowers with bright yellow centers. Provide average household temperatures, bright light (but protect from direct sunlight), keep soil moist but not soggy wet. Dry indoor air doesn't cause it any harm so misting isn't necessary. Fertilize in the spring when new growth begins with a liquid fertilizer diluted to label directions. China Doll is any easy houseplant to grow. Enjoy!
