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, however you will notice larger gaps between leaves if the plant is in a particularly shady spot.
Water: Keep soil moist during spring and summer, during winter the soil should dry out a little between watering.
Air humidity: Relatively tolerant of dry conditions but higher humidity will prevent crispy edges.
Potting mix: Well draining potting mix or Aroid mix.
Feeding: Feed with a balanced liquid houseplant fertiliser; water with fertiliser every month during the summer and every 6-8 weeks in autumn and winter.
This plant is toxic, keep out of reach of pets and children.
