General Maintenance: These can be repotted every spring into a pot one size bigger, if it's become very root bound. This plant is usually propagated by dividing when it is being repotted.
Temperature: This plant is quite partial to warmer temperatures, try to maintain temperatures between 18º - 24º Celsius.
Light: Ensure that your plant has bright light, but not direct sunlight. During the summer, ensure it has a fair amount of shade during part of the day, as long as your home is warm/humid enough. These plants can tolerate a bit more or less sun but will do their best in partial, filtered light.
Watering: Water in small amounts, but often. Ensure the soil remains consistently moist. Water much less during the winter. These plants also enjoy above-average humidity levels, so consider using a tray filled with water and pebbles underneath your plant or use a humidifier.
Soil: Use a fast draining, peat-based potting mix.
Fertilizer: Utilize a diluted, balanced fertilizer every two weeks from spring until the end of August.
