Ideal is bright, indirect light without exposure to direct light. The plant can tolerate low light conditions but ideally needs about 3-4 hours of indirect light a day to thrive.
Water about every 5-10 days when the soil is dry. Bi-weekly watering is more than enough. Water regularly in spring and summer and lessen during wintertime. This plant is sensitive to water with chlorine and minerals and prefers distilled or rain water.
Prefers a slight cool climate of about 55°F-65°F to be the most happy. Can tolerate low temperatures but try to avoid anything below 50°F. Enjoys humidity so mist the leaves occasionally in the mornings.
This plant can grow up to 2' tall and 3' wide indoors. Fertilize with small amounts of organic fertilizer every 2-3 weeks during summer only to promote growth. Be cautious as too much fertilizer may cause brown tips.
This plant does not need to be repotted often. Only repot if the rootball starts to grow out of your soil. Repot during the springtime and use a rich, well-draining soil.
This is one of the easiest plants to propagate as you just have to plant to pups that grow from the mother plant. Pick a plantlet that is bushy with a lot of roots, remove it from the mother plant, and press the roots into moist soil.
Non-toxic and safe to be around your dog. Be careful around cats as it may cause an upset stomach if eaten.
