The Stem Pledge
To see me at my best
Put me somewhere where I can catch the less intense morning sunshine, and water me when the top of my soil dries out.

How to look after me
I like bright light, but avoid direct Summer afternoon sunshine as it can burn my leaves.
From Spring to Autumn water when the top 2-3cm of soil is dry. Water me sparingly in winter.
Feed me once a month in spring and summer.
I like being in a warm room, and positioned away from heat sources and draughts. Mist me regularly.
When I am young, repot me into a larger pot every Spring. I don't like being moved, once you have found my perfect place with my needs met, leave me to flourish there!
