CareGeneral Maintenance: Repot every 1-2 years as needed to accomodate your plants growing root system. Trim away any brown/crunchy leaves as necessary, to promote new growth. Propagate by division of new pups.
Temperature: Prefers 18-24° Celsius, will not tolerate lower than 15°. Avoid sudden drafts or temperature changes.
Light: Average light needs, prefers indirect as too much direct light can damage the leaves.
Watering: Water frequently during spring & summer. Keep the soil evenly moist and avoid it drying out. In the winter cut watering back and only water when the top layer of the soil becomes dry. Utilize a pebble tray filled with water or a humidifier to keep your plant moist.
Soil: Prefers a soil with medium drainage qualities that can retain some of the moisture from watering. Replenish the top soil in the spring to replenish your plants supply of nutrients.
Fertilizer: Feed once a month with a balanced liquid feed during the growing season to encourage new growth and retain your plants vibrant colours.
