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.


Watering: Keep soil moist during spring and summer, during winter the soil should almost dry out completely between watering. 


Air humidity: Although relatively tolerant of dry conditions keep humidity higher to prevent crispy edges and encourage larger growth. 


Potting mix: Well draining potting mix or Aroid mix. 


Fertilising: Feed every 2-4 weeks during the growing period and every other month in winter. 


These plants are toxic, keep out of reach of pets and children.
