Care

General Maintenance: This is an easy to take care of plant that requires little to no maintenance. Repot once the plant has grown to the point that you can not see any of the top of the soil, or if it becomes particularly root bound.

Temperature: Ideal growing temperature is 20° - 24° Celsius, but will survive in the winters as long as temps remain above 15°. Avoid sudden drafts or cold windowsills. 

Light: Full Sun, this plant prefers about 6 hours a day of direct sunlight. Provide supplemental lighting in winter where possible. 

Watering: Low water needs. Only needs a moderate amount of moisture, as excessive moisture commonly leads to rotting problems. This plant is quite drought tolerant. 

Soil: Plant in well-drained, dry to average soil. Keep them fairly dry in the winter months. 

Fertilizer: Feed once every two weeks with a light drench of liquid fertilizer. Do not overfeed.
