Planting & Care
  • Water regularly to keep soil moist, this will help avoid brown tips on leaves caused by floride and other chemicals in tap water
  • Needs high humidity, place pot atop pebbles in a water filled saucer. As the water in the saucer evaporates it will help provide humidity around the plant while the pebbles keep the pot from resting in standing water.
  • Fertilize with a diluted solution of houseplant fertilizer during the growing season
  • Propagate by division
Problems
Spider mites, aphids, scale
