Care Instructions

Light Requirements:
Prefers bright, indirect sunlight. Too much direct sun can scorch its leaves, while too little light may cause it to become leggy.

Keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged. Allow the top inch of soil to dry out before watering again.

Soil and Fertilization:
Thrives in rich, well-draining soil. Use a balanced, slow-release fertilizer every 4-6 weeks during the growing season.

Temperature and Humidity:
Enjoys warm conditions with temperatures between 65-75°F (18-24°C) and high humidity. Consider misting the leaves or using a humidifier in drier environments.

Pruning and Maintenance:
Regularly remove any yellowing or damaged leaves to encourage healthy growth. Clean the leaves with a damp cloth to prevent dust accumulation and keep the plant looking its best.

Companion Plants

Choosing the right companion plants can make your space a lush, healthy haven, enhancing the beauty and vitality of your garden. Opt for plants with similar light and humidity preferences to ensure they grow harmoniously together. This thoughtful selection not only enriches the visual appeal of your space but also contributes to a balanced and supportive environment where each plant can thrive.
