Care Guide

Light Requirements (Prevent a Dull-Looking Plant)

Bright, indirect lighting  benefits this plant the most. Unfortunately, the leaves may be scorched by too much direct sunlight, although they can handle some mild sun.

Water Requirements (Careful Not to Overwater)

This plant likes to be kept evenly moist but not wet or soggy. Before rewatering, let the top few inches of soil dry out. You can let the plant dry out more during winter between waterings.

Temperature and Humidity (Avoid the Cold)

This plant prefers warm temperatures between 60-80 degrees Fahrenheit. However, it will not tolerate cold drafts or temperatures below 50 degrees Fahrenheit.
