Care Instructions

Light Requirements

Thrives in moderate to low indirect light. Can adapt to brighter conditions but avoid direct sunlight, which may scorch its leaves.


Allow the soil to dry out completely between waterings. Overwatering can lead to root rot, so it's better to err on the side of underwatering with this drought-tolerant plant.

Soil and Fertilization

Prefers well-draining potting mix. Use a general-purpose, slow-release fertilizer sparingly in the spring and summer months to encourage growth.

Temperature and Humidity

Enjoys typical indoor temperatures between 60-75°F (15-24°C). No special humidity requirements, making it suitable for most home environments.

Pruning and Maintenance

Minimal pruning required. Remove any yellow or damaged leaves to maintain its appearance. Dust the leaves occasionally to keep them glossy.


Propagate by division or leaf cuttings. The process is slow but rewarding, offering a way to multiply your 'Black Queen' collection.

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.
