Plant Care tips
- Lighting: This plant thrives in bright direct sunlight. The amount of light can be reduced in the winter season.
- Temperature: Ideally, it should be placed in the temperature range of 70° F to 100° F.
- Fertilizing: Monthly feeding of low nitrogen fertilizer. Fertilization should stop one month before the planned winter cycle for the plant's health.
Watering: Water only when the top 1 inch of soil is dry. When it is actively growing between spring and fall, regular watering is essential. Once the plant enters winter dormancy, dampening the medium once every 3 to 4 weeks is enough.
