Clusia Rosea, also known as the autograph tree, is part of the only genus of plants that have the unique ability to absorb carbon dioxide during night time. This makes it one of the most unique and fascinating plants to study. The plant boasts thick, leathery dark green leaves that are perfect for absorbing sunlight during the day, and the leaves are so tough that they can even be carved, giving the plant its distinctive nickname, "autograph tree."

The plant comes with a default nursery pot. The nursery pot is usually 0.5" - 1" smaller than stated to fit into the same size decorative pot. Washable Paper Planter Bags are sold separately.

As with all living things, no two plants are alike. There is some natural variation in size, shape, and characteristics. We make every effort to bring you a plant that as closely as possible matches the plant as it appears on our website, in the size you have chosen, and have a good potential to happily grow in your home.

Care Guide

How to take care of Clusia Rosea

They should not be in a position to see the sun directly, although early morning or late evening sun is fine. Filtered sunlight through a sheer curtain is best and most homes are comprised primarily of indirect sunlight. The best spot for them is where they do not see the sun during the majority of the day but still get bright, indirect light.

They will thrive in bright light, but also can tolerate medium light. A good medium-light place in your home would be in the middle of a room that has a regular size window. They can be placed anywhere between the middle of the room and the window. Remember that plants will grow based on how much light they receive.

They need to be watered when the top half of the soil is dry to the touch. That usually takes about 1 week in an average home environment. It will vary depending on the time of year, your environment and lighting conditions, but it's always safer to underwater or give the soil a check before you water again. Expect to water more often in brighter light and less often in lower light.

They like a high humidity environment, give them a mist daily or as often as possible. Alternatively, you can put them around a humidifier. Although they won't die if they don't receive enough humidity, their leaves may have some dry, crunchy, or yellow edges.

This plant is moderately toxic and can cause some adverse reactions when ingested so it is best to not let your pets eat it, which we advise for all plants in general. The severity of the reaction will depend on how much of the plant is ingested but, if you know your pet typically does not eat your plants, this plant will be suitable for your home.

Introducing the Clusia Rosea, a stunning and versatile houseplant that encourages us to embrace the beauty of transformation and adaptability.

The Clusia Rosea, also known as the Autograph Tree, features thick, leathery leaves and an extraordinary ability to adapt to various environments. Its leaves can even be "autographed" by lightly scratching the surface with a pen or a fingernail. This incredible characteristic serves as a reminder that we can all leave our mark in the world by embracing change and adapting to new situations.

To help your Clusia Rosea flourish, provide it with bright, indirect light, although it can also tolerate medium light conditions. This versatile plant demonstrates how the right environment can foster growth and transformation in our own lives.

When it comes to watering, Clusia Rosea prefers to let its soil dry out partially between waterings. Practice mindfulness and balance as you care for your plant, remembering that, sometimes, less is more, both in plant care and in life.

As your Clusia Rosea grows, its resilience and adaptability will continue to inspire you to embrace change and leave your own unique mark on the world.

Welcome the Clusia Rosea into your home, and let it serve as a symbol of transformation, adaptability, and the importance of making a positive impact on the world around us. It's not just a plant; it's a powerful reminder that by embracing change and adapting to new circumstances, we can create a more fulfilling and vibrant life for ourselves and those around us.
