  • When making a site selection keep your plant in an area that has bright indirect light, but not direct sunlight.
  • Feed this heavy feeder every three weeks during the warmer months with a one half-strength fertilizer with a balanced N-P-K ratio or 20-20-20
  • keep your plant fairly dry when planting to avoid crown rot, stem rot and other fungal diseases
