Tips on how to grow your plant successfully:

Light: Grows well both indoors and outdoors. Best in partial shade or bright indirect light.

Potting: Best grown in shallow containers. Always use a free draining potting mix. We recommended a good quality potting soil with the addition of fine gravel or perlite.

Watering: Water your plant thoroughly and wait for your plant to start drying out before watering again. Approximately once a week. Never leave your plant standing in water for any length of time. Always pour off the excess water which has collected in the drip tray after watering.

Fertiliser: Apply a balanced water soluble fertiliser at ½ of the recommended strength once a month in spring and summer.

Please Note:

The plant is currently growing in a 10 cm plastic pot.  Although our plants are grown under the same conditions and we carefully handpick your plant to ensure the best quality possible, no two plants are identical.  The plant supplied will be similar to the plant photographed.
