Plant Care

Light: Low to Bright Indirect Light. Turning around every so often so it can grow evenly towards the light. 

Water: Water every 10-14 days. Best to wait when the top 50% of soil is dry before watering. A good way to check is sticking your finger into the soil and if it feels completely dry then water again.

Fertilizer: Fertilize once a year, apply a layer of compost to the topsoil at the beginning of the growing season.  

Pet Friendly: No. This plant is toxic to animals. 

Plant comes in a 10" Nursery Pot. (Planter sold separately)
