Care

General Maintenance: This plant is extremely low maintenance.  It likes to be slightly rootbound, so don't rush to repot it.  Trim off any dead leaves as needed.  Propagate easily with cuttings.

Temperature: Thrives in normal household temperatures, between 15º-26º Celsius.   Keep away from drafts and drastic temperature changes.

Light: Bright indirect light is ideal.  Can tolerate some shade.  Direct sun can scorch the leaves.

Watering: Water once every 7-10 days, then allow the soil to dry out almost entirely before watering again.  Ensure your pot has proper drainage.  This plant enjoys being misted as well.

Soil: Any well-draining potting mix works well.

Fertilizer: Fertilize with a balanced houseplant fertilizer once every 3 weeks in the spring and summer.
