Light: Prefers bright, indirect light. It doesn’t grow well in direct sun. This plant would normally receive light filtered through dense overhanging tree branches in the jungle.
Water: Regularly during summer. Water the plant thoroughly until water drains from the bottom of the pot. Allow the soil to become slightly dry before you water the plant again. Excessive watering can cause damage to the root. From spring through fall, water the plant every two weeks. Mature plants can survive even if they are watered sparingly during winter.
