How To Grow & Care:


Almost a hassle-free plant, it requires minimum care and grows easily under light conditions ranging from bright light indoors to strong filtered light outdoors. Strong, full sun should be avoided as extreme sunlight causes bleaching. The tones of the vibrant colours displayed on its foliage depends on the light intensity, with low to medium light making the colours on the leaves dull and less vibrant, and strong bright light for best foliage colour. It prefers a humid environment and a moist, rich and well-drained soil. Moderately drought tolerant once established. It is generally free from pests or diseases. Never overwater, as they can develop rot if overwatered, exposed to cold conditions, or damaged.

If you water from beneath by letting the plant sit in a saucer of water, make sure to pour off any excess water after a few minutes.
