Secrets to success

 

Temperature: 15-24˚C

 

Light: Bright indirect light or dappled light; this plant is prone to sunburn if it's too close to a window.

 

Watering: Keep potting mix consistently damp during growing season, allow to dry out during winter.

 

Air humidity: Higher humidity is best; this can be achieved by using a humidifier, placing the plant on a tray of watered pebbles. Try to resist misting as this can sometimes lead to powdery mildew.

 

Fertilising: Feed every two weeks spring-summer.

 

Potting mix: Use a mix of peat moss or coco coir with perlite for drainage.

 

This plant is non-toxic.
