Glossy deep green leaves, you can't go wrong. 

 

 

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 light is best. OK in rooms with low natural light.

TEMP // Normal room temp.

HUMIDITY // Warm moist air is best. Increase air moisture and spritz in hotter months. 

WATERING // Generous watering spring-summer, soak soil through and drain well, do not let it sit in water.  Allow top soil to dry in between waterings. In winter let the soil almost dry completely in between waterings.

FEEDING // Use diluted liquid fertiliser fortnightly from spring to late summer.

DISLIKES // Brown and yellow patches followed by leaf drop are due to dry air, persistent draughts or over watering.
