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.

 

Water: 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 containing perlite and bark.

 

Fertilising: Feed every 2-4 weeks during the growing season.

 

This plant is toxic, keep out of reach of pets and children.
