I like my soil to kept moist but never wet.


Room temperatures of 16-24°C are perfect.


Feed me once a month between spring and autumn.


I like the occasional shower to get the dust off my leaves and get refreshed.


In the wild I'm a climbing vine so I will eventually need a support to grow upright in your home.


I am toxic so please don't eat me.


Although you can buy me as a houseplant grown in Europe, I feature on the Red List of endangered species in my native country Brazil.
