TOP TIP - USE RAIN WATER, OR COOLED BOILED WATER FOR ALL PLANTS AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE. HARD WATER CAN CAUSE BROWNING TO THE LEAVES OF QUITE A FEW PLANTS. I'VE LEARNT THE HARD WAY! DO IT, IT'S WORTH THE EFFORT AND THE PLANTS WILL THANK YOU FOR IT.
LIGHT // Indirect in summer. As much as possible in winter.
TEMP // Normal room temp. Thrive at higher temps with moist air.
HUMIDITY // Used to the steamy jungle, it loves high humidity. For your home spray often and keep the moss pole moist.
WATERING // Spring and summer water often, but in winter keep the compost barely moist.
FEEDING // Young plants, feed with liquid fertiliser fortnightly from spring to late summer. Can also add on a fresh top layer of compost on larger plants.
DISLIKES // Overwatering! Excessive watering leads to root rot and can develop brownish-yellow patches. Step away from the watering can!
