In the wild I can grow up to 20m tall! Indoors, my growth will be regulated by my pot size

I prefer bright, indirect light, but I will tolerate some degree of shade. No direct sunlight, please

Water

Water me when my soil has become slightly dry at the top, probably about once a week

I should be fine in most households, but please don't put me in a room with temperatures lower than 10°C

Feed me once a month with a balanced fertiliser during the Spring and Summer

Grooming

Wipe my leaves occasionally to remove accumulated dust

I have fragile stems, so don't be dismayed if I lose some leaves
