Care information and instructions:

Sun/Light Exposure:
They prefer indirect natural light, or morning sun. The best window in a house for this kind of light is a northern or eastern facing window. Only place this plant is a southern or western window if it does not receive any direct afternoon sun. Direct afternoon sun burns the leaves on this plant and gives it an unsightly appearance.

Watering: Water this plant when the soil is dry 2-3” deep. Depending on the soil it is in, it is likely they will need water every 7-14 days.

Soil: Typical potting soils are excellent for this plant. A little perlite added in never hurts either (most potting mixes should already have perlite, but check the label just to be sure).

Winter Hardiness:
Tropical/House Plant. A very swift death will happen to this plant if it sees temperatures below freezing.
