POSITION It will thrive in a spot with bright, indirect light.
WATER Keep soil on the dry side. Drench soil thoroughly, then allow it to become moderately dry before watering again. Water regularly from spring to autumn. Sparingly in winter. Over watering and stem rot are common problems, especially at low temperatures.
MAINTENANCE Repot in spring - remember to only go up one pot size. If you choose too big a pot, then the excess potting mix retains moisture and can lead to fungal problems and root rot.Use a high quality potting mix with excellent drainage.
After potting, pat the potting mix down to remove any air pockets and water in well using a weak seaweed solution. This will help it settle in quickly and happily.
