Care Instructions

Light Requirements:
Prefers bright, indirect sunlight. Direct sun can scorch its leaves, while too little light may result in leggy growth.

Watering:
Water when the top 2-3 inches of soil are dry to the touch. Ensure adequate drainage to prevent root rot.

Soil and Fertilization:
Use a well-draining, peat-rich potting mix. Fertilize monthly during the growing season with a balanced, liquid fertilizer.

Temperature and Humidity:
Thrives in a warm, humid environment. Keep temperatures between 65°F and 80°F, and use a humidifier or pebble tray to maintain high humidity levels.

Pruning and Maintenance:
Remove any yellowing or damaged leaves to promote new growth. Wipe the leaves with a soft, damp cloth to keep them clean and healthy.
