Secrets to success
Temperature: Ideal temperatures are 16-24°C. Temperatures above or below could slow down growth.
Light: Most suited to bright indirect light but can tolerate lower light.
Water: Keep soil moist during spring and summer, during winter the soil should almost dry out completely between watering.
Air humidity: Relatively tolerant of dry conditions but higher humidity will prevent crispy edges and encourage larger growth.
Potting mix: Well draining potting mix or Aroid mix with orchid bark.
Feeding: Fertilise every 2-4 weeks during the growing period and every other month in winter.
This plant is toxic, keep out of reach of pets and children.
