Starbright Plant/Flower Care Guide

Silver Queen

Silver Queen
Light Icon


Low, medium or bright indirect light. Direct sunlight will scorch the leaves.

Water Icon


Water the soil in the container regularly, whenever the soil's surface feels dry to the touch. Slightly decrease watering frequency in winter, but do not allow the soil to dry out completely.

Temperature Icon


Maintain a daytime temperature around 75 degrees Fahrenheit and a nighttime temperature around 65 F for best plant growth. Temperatures below 50 to 55 F can cause chilling injury to the "Silver Queen" evergreen, which appears three to seven days after the cold exposure as gray, greasy-looking leaf spots.

Soil Icon


Regular potting soil.

Fertilizer Icon


Fertilize "Silver Queen" evergreen with a water-soluble, complete fertilizer with a 20-20-20 or similar formula in spring and summer.
