WATER & HUMIDITY

Keep soil moist, but not overwater. Water with soft water or distilled water only when the top inch of the soil is dry, usually every 5-7 days depending on the indoor climate and lighting conditions. Let the water drain through the bottom, then allow to dry out completely between waterings.

The plant enjoys slightly more humid environment like bathroom or kitchen.

Temperature between 65°F-85°F, perhaps average home temperature. However they are tropical plants so prefer high humidity and temperatures.

During spring and summer, you can feed your plant a diluted general houseplant fertilizer (at half strength) every two to three weeks to promote growth and healthy leaves.
