How to take
Care of me

60 to 70° F. Keep me away from cold drafts, air conditioning or heating vents, and hot surfaces like radiators or furnaces.
TEMPERATURE
Allow soil to dry out slightly between waterings.Water using distilled water. You also can leave tap water sitting out for 24 hours before using to allow chemicals to evaporate.
WATERING
Use a liquid or houseplant fertilizer at half strength. Fertilize me once in early spring, early summer, and late summer.
FERTILIZER
If you notice spider mites, mealybugs, or whiteflies, gently wipe them off with a 50/50 mix of soap and water.
POTENTIAL PESTS
I'm low-maintenance when it comes to pruning. You can remove any dead leaves if needed.
PRUNING
I'll grow quickly when I'm happy. When I become rootbound, repot me in a new pot that is 2" wider with plenty of drainage holes.
REPOTTING

In two words—warmth and humidity. Indoors, I like being misted daily. I also like to stay in the same place. Once I'm acclimated, I hate to move. Lots of bright, indirect light will also keep me colorful.

Appearance

Each one of us is unique, so I might not look exactly like the photograph. Embrace me for who I am! When I arrive, gently remove me from the box and introduce me to my new home. Check to make sure my soil is moist after the journey
