Care

General Maintenance: If your plants roots have become cramped in your pot you can repot in late winter/early spring. Be very careful with this plant as you repot it, as it is easily susceptible to damage while being moved. This plant can be propagated by seed or division. 

Temperature: Prefers a temperature range between 21º - 32º Celsius, but will tolerate temperatures as low as 13º. 

Light: This plant needs fairly bright light conditions all year round, but prefers indirect/filtered light. Too much sunlight will damage the foliage.

Watering: During the summer months the soil should be kept consistently moist, and during winter allow the soil to dry out slightly between watering. This plant will do fine in average house humidity during the summer, but may require the occasional misting during the drier winter. 

Soil: This plant does fairly well in most soil types. An average potting soil will work perfectly well.

Fertilizer: Use a balanced houseplant fertilizer twice a month during the spring and summer months, and reduce to once a month during the winter.
