Plant Care Tips
Place me in a sunny spot, ideally next to an east or west-facing window, or back from a south-facing window.
Water me whenever the top few centimetres of my soil has dried out.
I love humid environments, like a bathroom or kitchen. Alternatively use a humidifier or a tray of pebbles.
