Secrets to success

 

Temperature: 18-24˚C, keep out of draughts and avoid temperature fluctuations.

 

Light: Grows best in semi-shade; can tolerate light or filtered sunlight but avoid direct sun as that will bleach and burn leaves. 

 

Watering: Keep substrate moist, reduce watering in winter.

 

Air humidity: Higher humidity.

 

Fertilising: Organic fertiliser is best but if using a synthetic fertiliser, dilute to half the recommended dosage. Feed monthly during growing season. 

 

Potting mix: Less perlite, more peat or loam.

 

This plant is non-toxic.
