Useful to know:
I am native to Mexico, Brazil and the West Indies.
I am a fast grower, and will climb up a support or trail from a hanging basket. Care for me well and I might reach 4m.
I prefer medium light. I can tolerate bright light but not direct sunlight. A good option for a less sunny room.
Let the very top of my soil dry before watering as I don't like wet roots.
Temperatures between 16-24 degrees are ideal for me.
During the growing season feed me every 6 weeks with a diluted solution.
If I'm getting too gangly, cut back straggly ends and I should grow more consistently.
Wipe my leaves with a damp cloth to remove dust. That way I can photosynthesise properly and look my best.
I am toxic, keep me away from pets and children.
Once mature, I may produce spathes of green-white flowers, periodically.
