Size: 6cm pot
Light: Bright indirect light
Watering: Allow the top 2-3 cm of the compost to dry between waterings when the plant is actively growing, usually from spring through autumn. Reduce watering frequency significantly in winter if light levels are lower.
Feeding: Use half the recommended dose of a balanced liquid fertilizer every few weeks from spring through autumn, or whenever you can see active growth.
Soil: Soil-based compost with added perlite for drainage.
Tip: This plant is safe around pets and children. Direct sunlight can leave sunburn marks on the leaves. Do not mist the foliage. After 2-3 weeks of adjustment, we recommend repotting into a slightly larger pot.
