  • GROWING: Re-pot in a larger container to increase root and foliage growth. Trim off old, drying leaves from time to time.

    LIGHT: If growing indoors, place in a balcony or other bright spot with exposure to direct sunlight for at least six hours daily. If growing outdoors, place in semi-shade or protect from intense afternoon direct sun.

    WATERING: Daily in every season. Allow soil to dry out completely between watering events. Never let its roots sit in stagnant water. If growing indoors, ensure that drip trays are emptied regularly.

    FERTILIZING: Our plants are sold in organically enriched, NPK+MagSulf strong, potting mixes that would need no additional soil amendments for at least one year. If re-potting/migrating to a larger container, we recommend the use of Mandy's Farm Basic Potting Mix or one similar to it.
