Plant Care

Position / Light:
This species likes plenty of indirect, bright light, although exposure to direct afternoon sunlight should be avoided as the delicate leaves will burn easily. Be sure to rotate regularly for even growth, as this plant will grow towards the light. To encourage new leaves and protect stems from damage, this plant can benefit a supporting stake.

Care / Water:
It is particularly important to avoid over-watering this species as it is prone to root rot; it should only be watered once the top 3-5cm of soil is completely dry. When it's time, we recommend placing it outside (or in the sink), giving it a good drench, then leaving time for all the residual water to drain through. For this reason you should always keep this species in a pot with adequate drainage holes, i.e., place the plastic nursery pot inside any decorative pot and remove for watering. This plant also appreciates higher humidity so will benefit from regular light misting.
