Ideal is bright, indirect light without exposure to direct light. Typically needs about 3-4 hours of indirect a day to thrive.
Water about every 5-10 days when the soil is dry. Bi-weekly watering is more than enough. This plant is sensitive to water with chlorine and minerals and prefers distilled or rain water.
Prefers a slight cool climate of about 65° to be the most happy. Can tolerate in low temperatures.
Enjoys humidity. Mist the leaves occasionally in the mornings.
Use rich, well-draining soil and fertilize with small amounts of organic fertilizer every 2-3 weeks to promote growth. None in winter! Can grow up to 24".
Non-toxic and safe for your pets!
This plant produces offspring which can be removed and grown in water until roots develop.
One of the most pet friendly plants all around!
