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. 

 

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.
