The area where this plant is native receives rains in both winter and summer, so it can be watered moderately all year around (except in the coldest month of the winter as it rot easily especially if over wet ) During the summer, they enjoy average feeding and watering.

Soil
It is a pretty easy species, it grows well in a very draining mineral potting substrate, but it isn't picky about soil.

Love it!

My overall experience was very positive. The plant was well wrapped and I've only had it two weeks and it's already sprouting new growth. I will definitely be purchasing more plants from this business!
