Care Guide:

  • Light: Thrives in full to partial sun. Provide bright, indirect light for optimal growth. Protect from harsh midday sunlight, especially in warmer climates.
  • Watering: Keep the soil consistently moist, but avoid overwatering, as this can lead to root rot. Water when the top inch of soil feels dry to the touch.
  • Temperature: Prefers warm temperatures between 65°F to 85°F (18°C to 29°C). Protect from cold drafts and temperatures below 50°F (10°C).
  • Soil: Plant in well-draining, fertile soil with good moisture retention. Consider adding organic matter to improve soil structure and nutrient content.
  • Fertilization: Feed with a balanced fertilizer every 4-6 weeks during the growing season to support healthy growth and vibrant foliage.
  • Pruning: Remove dead or damaged leaves regularly to maintain a tidy appearance and promote new growth. Trim away any suckers or offsets to encourage a single, strong central stem.
