Warmer environments are preferred but the plant will also thrive in normal moderate home temperatures. Avoid draughts.
Let the top few inches of soil dry out before watering it. Keep the soil moist but not wet. Use distilled or collected rainwater, if you use tap water, leave it overnight in an open container so the chlorine can evaporate.
If your home air is on the dry side, mist the plant every couple of days.
Feed it with a diluted water-soluble fertiliser once a month.
