Care

General Maintenance: Remove any yellow or brown leaves that occur. Repot when rootbound.

Temperature: Keep in moderate temperatures of 18°C - 25°C.

Light: Foliage is prone to sunburn, so keep these plants away from direct sunlight. Bright to medium indirect light is best, but they can tolerate low light.

Watering: Water moderately when the top 1-2 inches of soil are dry. Keep moist, but never soggy. Water less in the winter. This plant does not love tap water, so it is best to use distilled water or to let tap water sit for 24 hours before using it to water your plant. This plant loves humidity. Extra humidity can be provided via a pebble tray or light misting.

Fertilizer: Fertilize with a balanced, diluted fertilizer once every 3-4 weeks during the growing season (April through August).

Soil: Any well-draining, but organic soil that holds moisture will work. Look for one that is peat-based but has perlite and/or orchid bark added for drainage.
