Light: I like bright light but not direct
Water: Weekly, make sure my soil is dry before watering to avoid overwatering me
Humidity: Normal humidity indoors will suit me fine.
Temperature: I like warmer climates 18°C to 24°C
Fertiliser: Feed me once a month during the Spring & Summer months.
Toxicity: I am non-toxic to humans & animals - yay!
A handy tip - If your plant is suffering from a case of 'brown leaf'. This could be down to not enough watering. Start by misting the leaves to revive.
