Growth rate: It is a relatively fast growing species.
Exposure: Full sun to light shade appears to be the optimum range, but can tolerate the most shade, and a plant that has been growing in shade should be slowly hardened off before placing it in full sun as the plant will be severely scorched if moved too suddenly from shade into sun.
Waterings: Relatively flexible in its watering requirements. They can be watered regularly as long as the medium is open and well drained. Allow the medium to dry out somewhat between waterings. Reduce watering to once every month during winter.
Hardiness: Very tender, protect from frost.
