How to grow:

Prefers moist but well-drained soil. Check the soil moisture with your finger. If the top 2-4” (5-10cm) of soil is dry, or plants are wilted, it is time to water. Apply a balanced fertilizer designed for foliage plants monthly.

Keeping the foliage trimmed keeps the plants looking neat and tidy, encourages the plant to develop more side-shoots and flowers, and reduces the demand for the plant to develop a larger root system.

Parts used:

Whole plant.
