CareGeneral Maintenance: These plants will not need to be repotted very often, but it is helpful to change at least the top layer of soil once a year to provide your plant with some fresh nutrients. This plant is very easy to propagate from cuttings, simply take a cutting, remove a few of the bottom leaves, and place into water or damp soil.
Temperature: Thrives in normal household temperatures, between 15º-26º Celsius. Keep away from drafts and drastic temperature changes.
Light: Plenty of bright indirect light is ideal. Some direct sunlight is fine, but too much hot sun can scorch the leaves.
Watering: Water sparingly, as these plants do not like to sit in excess water. Allow them to dry out almost entirely between waterings.
Soil: A well draining soil is very important. Adding perlite, sand, or orchid medium to your regular potting mix is a great way to improve drainage. Cactus soil also works well for this plant.
Fertilizer: Feed with a diluted liquid fertilizer once every three weeks during the spring and summer months.
