Planting and care

 

Sunlight Soil Water Temperature Fertilizer
Diffused light Holds moisture but is also well draining. A good potting mix consists of one part soil, two parts peat moss and two parts perlite. Regular small amounts of water during the growing seasons as soon as the surface starts to dry up. Temperatures above 55 degrees F (13 degrees C) to survive and temperatures around 70 degrees F (21 degrees C) to thrive. Fertilize occasionally with a half-strength solution of liquid fertilizer.
