Growing conditions

From humid South and Central American rainforests. Non-toxic and very easy to grow.

 

Watering

Allow soil to dry thoroughly between waterings otherwise the roots can rot. Reduce watering in winter. Mist regularly but make sure the water is pooling on their glossy leaves as this can cause rot. Grouping plants can help with humidity levels.

 

Aspect

Indirect light to semi-shade, but lack of light can cause growing issues such as etiolation.

 

Temperature
