- Place it in bright indirect light. Too much direct light can lead to yellow leaves. On the other side, too much shade can lead to long leggy leaves, so it is important for you to find the right light conditions for this beauty.
- Keep the soil damp but not soggy. Allow the soil to become dry at the top to the touch between watering. Overwatering can lead to root rot. Using a Sustee Moisture Meter stick helps to figure out how much moisture is in the soil so you don’t under or overwater.
- Prefers room temperatures of 18-29 °C.
- Repot it once a year at the beginning of spring, especially during the first 3 - 5 years of life.
- Use fertilizer monthly at half-strength during the growing season (March - September) and reduce it to every 8 weeks for the rest of the year.
