Description

When caring for this plant, it is important to keep in mind that the roots and foliage are sensitive. The roots need a happy medium where the soil stays moist but not water logged. To ensure this, it’s best to wait until the top three inches of soil are dry before watering; water well enough to where the water runs out of the pot. water less in Winter. The soil should be a well draining soil that’s crumby. Something like fine orchid bark, perlite and coco chips is a great mix. The leaves are sensitive and will burn quite quickly if they are exposed to direct sun, place where there is bright filtered light. An East facing or west facing window is perfect for indoors. This plant needs high humidity around 60-80%. May drop leaves in Winter.
