A gorgeous plant that enjoys a well-lit spot with medium-bright light and particularly a direct morning sun. Avoid positions with harsh direct afternoon sunlight as this can burn and damage the leaves while insufficient light adversely impacts growth. Look out for slow growth, dropping leaves and stretching towards any available light source. To prevent your plant from growing in a distorted manner, rotate your potted plant a quarter turn each month.

Remove dust from foliage with a damp soft cloth to allow the plant to breath and absorb moisture. Mist foliage with a trigger sprayer to keep it looking fresh and increase humidity. You may need to increase the humidity within the room during winter if heating the room.

Repot the plant every spring while young and growing vigorously. Once your plant has matured it will generally only need to have the top soil replaced each year.

Watering needs

Indoor plants love warm, tepid water. Water when you stick your finger into the soil to your first knuckle and the soil feels dry. Avoid overwatering which can cause rot. You'll need to reduce watering in winter.

Pruning Advice

Use clean, sharp secateurs to remove spent leaves, first check there are no pests causing the problem.

To keep your plant at a particular height, prune the top to your desired height.

If your plant is getting too big for your space, prune 25 % off the branches and roots and re-pot back into the same or a similar sized container.
