The table gives a guide to the size of this plant and how it will fit into your space. Height is measured from the bottom of the plastic nursery pot (please allow a +/-10% variance). Diameter is the nursery pot diameter, so to get a pot that fits, the pot diameter should be bigger.
How to look after me
I prefer bright indirect light, however, I can also cope in light shade.
Water me moderately in summer, allowing the top half of my soil to dry out in-between waterings; water me just sparingly in winter.
Feed me once a month in spring and summer.
I am pretty bulletproof and can deal with dry air and draughts.
I can be top-heavy so make sure to put me in a heavy pot!
Things to look out for
Leaves falling sidewardsYou may have over/under-watered, or your plant isn't getting enough light
Wrinkled leavesMost likely your plant is under-watered - water moderately for a few days and they should perk-up
Yellowing leavesUsually caused by overwatering, check for root rot
ToxicityAll parts are toxic - keep away from pets and children.
Air-purificationA superstar at cleaning the air, I remove toxins during the day and release oxygen at night, so perfect for a bedroom
