Growing conditions

Give it a liquid feed every 2 weeks during growing season. Brown spots can be caused by… too much direct sunlight – move it to a bright but indirect spot, not enough nutrients – give a diluted feed of a balanced NPK mix for a few weeks, rot – change compost and water with half a cut of water every time and don’t saturate soil so it becomes anaerobic.



Can keep it well watered in growing season, it is okay if the compost is kept moist. It likes humidity so mist as often as possible and use a pebble tray



A bright spot, can cope with some direct sun, especially in the winter months



Average – keep out of drafts
