Quick Care Guide

Water Frequently

This plant loves a consistently moist growing medium. You should check this plant frequently to ensure that it is watered almost routinely, to prevent it from drying out at all.

Medium Light

This plant will benefit from being in a location with low to medium indirect or ambient light. Exposure to harsh, direct sun will cause leaf burn and colour fading.

High Humidity

This plant requires a high humidity environment (75% >) to thrive. Lower humidity levels may result in crisping or uneven yellowing of leaf edges.

Problems & Maintenance

This plant is sensitive to water quality and chemicals. To prevent brown leaf tips, consider using only rainwater, distilled water, and natural fertilizers.

Suitable for Indoors

This is a plant that will live happily indoors so long it is properly cared for. Do not expose this plant to direct sun rays for prolonged periods, to avoid leaf curling.

Pet Friendly

Hooray, this plant is pet and child friendly! No parts of this plant are toxic when ingested or irritating to the skin.
