CareGeneral Maintenance: Re-pot once every two or three years during spring. They like to become slightly root bound - so don’t worry if they seem to showing some roots through the bottom of the pot. Prone to stem and root rot if the soil is overly wet. Susceptible to mealy bugs.

Light: Partial sun, avoid direct sunlight as it can scorch the leaves.
Watering: Average water needs. Keep soil evenly moist. Prefers a bit of extra humidity, which can be provided by misting or using a pebble tray.
Soil: A peat-based potting soil mixed with perlite or sand to improve drainage is ideal (or any other well draining potting mix).
