Positioning + Light Needs
Happy with good natural light and partial shade but avoid direct sunlight. Keep me in a warm environment, so no cold or damp rooms.
The soil in the pots should be kept moist, never soaked and never be allowed to dry out. During the summer months you will be watering as much as twice per week to maintain moisture levels, whereas in winter you should water sparingly only when the top 2 inches of soil have dried out.
Light misting every week or so during the Spring / Summer months; in the Winter months, when the heating kicks in, just every couple of weeks or so please.
Fast grower, so feed the plant monthly March to September; during Winter, every other month with a basic houseplant food.
When the roots compact and form a tight ball it is time for the plant to be repotted into a planter that is around 2-3 inches larger. Repotting should take place late Winter or early Spring before the plant begins to grow new leaves.
Child / Pet Friendly
No, toxic if consumed I'm afraid.
I am indeed!
Look out for
Over watering will cause the leaves to turn yellow. Under watering will cause the leaves to turn brown and fall off.
