CareGeneral Maintenance: These can be repotted every spring if they have become very root bound. This plant is usually propagated by dividing when it's being repotted.

Light: Ensure this plant has bright light, but not direct sunlight. During the summer, ensure it has a fair amount of shade if your house is quite warm/humid. These plants can tolerate some variation of more/less sunlight, but do their best in partial, filtered light.
