- Light: Direct Sunlight – This plant loves direct sunlight so place it by an window that gets direct, natural light for a least a portion of the day.
- Water: Thirsty – This plant can only go 1 to 2 weeks without water so check weekly and water when the top two inches of soil dry out.
- Tips: Like many houseplants, it would rather be too dry than too wet so if you are unsure about whether it needs water, wait a day or two and check again.
