Care

General Maintenance: Repot in the spring if the plant has become quite root bound. These are usually propagated by dividing the plant when it's being re-potted in spring.

Temperature: Average temperatures between 18º - 24º Celsius are ideal for this plant. 

Light: Needs bright conditions, but no direct sun. 

Watering: Keep the soil consistently moist during the growing season. Water less in the winter. These plants like extra humidity so consider a weekly misting or using a pebble tray filled with water. 

Soil: Use a fast draining, peat-based potting mix. 

Fertilizer: Feed with a diluted balanced fertilizer from spring every 2 weeks and stop at the end of August then start again at the beginning of spring.
