Care Instructions

Light Requirements

Thrives in medium to bright indirect sunlight. Direct sunlight should be avoided, as it can fade the colors of the leaves and cause damage.


Keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged. Water when the top inch of soil becomes dry. Using lukewarm water is best to avoid shocking the plant's roots.

Soil and Fertilization

A well-draining, peat-based potting soil is ideal. Fertilize bi-monthly with a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer during the growing season.

Temperature and Humidity

This plant prefers temperatures between 65°F and 75°F (18°C - 24°C) and high humidity. Consider using a humidifier or placing a water tray nearby to maintain the moisture in the air.

Pruning and Maintenance

Remove any yellow or brown leaves to keep the plant looking its best and to encourage new growth. Clean the leaves regularly to prevent dust accumulation and to keep the stomata clear for breathing.


Propagation is typically done through division during repotting. Ensure each section has adequate roots and at least one or two leaves to establish itself successfully.

Companion Plants

Choosing the right companion plants can make your space a lush, healthy haven, enhancing the beauty and vitality of your garden.
