Positioning: High in Shade-house, this plant enjoys high light and air flow.

Watering: This variety likes to be watered 1-3 times a week. Once a week in the winter time, and more often and frequently in the summer months. Caution: Avoid soaking over 1 hour, or trapped water in between its leaves for long periods. After soaking or a heavy misting, make sure you turn it upside down and shake the excess water free.
