How to look after me
I like to be in light shade in summer months and somewhere slightly brighter in the winter.
From Spring to Autumn, keep my soil moist and water me whenever the top few cm's of my soil is dry. Water me less in winter.
Feed me one a month from Spring to Summer.
Mist me regularly and keep me away from temperature fluctuations and draughts.
Things to look out for
Pale LeavesToo much direct sun can make my leaves appear bleached and washed out.
Dropping leavesI am most likely cold, or near a draft.
Brown edgesLikely under-watering. Keep my soil moist but not soggy.
ToxicToxic if ingested - keep away from pets and children. People call me Dumb Cane due to my sap, which can cause temporary speech loss.
