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 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: 2 to 1 parts of a soil-based compost, perlite and orchid bark.
Troubleshooting: Yellowing leaves can be a sign of overwatering.
Tip: This plant can be toxic if ingested, so we advise to keep it away from pets and children. Direct sunlight can leave sunburn marks on the leaves. You can display it in a hanging pot or allow it to trail up a moss pole.
