Water: Water when the soil starts to become slightly dry at the top. Keep the soil moist at all times, but do not over water as this will cause leaf drop.

Temperature: Ideal temperatures are 16-24°C. Avoid cold draughts.

Humidity: No specific requirements, although the occasional misting wouldn't go amiss.

Feed: Apply a weak dose of a fertiliser once or twice a month during the growing season. View Plant Nutrition
