Enjoys bright, indirect light but shield away from any direct sun. Can also be grown under fluorescent light, making this plant appropriate for the office.
Water every 7-10 days but let the soil dry out before watering. Do not overwater, better to water less when starting than more. Water less frequently in winter as the thick leaves store water.
Ideal temperature is 65-75° and prefers a warmer climate. Does not like temperatures below 50°.
This plant does like humidity but does not require it. Mist the leaves during the warmer months or leave a water tray nearby to plant your plant happy.
Controlled growth that does not reach more than 10-12". Use a peat based soil and do not repot frequently, root bound and shallow pots are best. Fertilize every 2-3 weeks in the spring with a diluted liquid fertilizer, none from autumn to spring.
