NUTRIENT: During Spring and Summer use a half-strength liquid fertilizer. Blood and bone is excellent for these plants. Do not feed during winter.
TEMPERATURE & HUMIDITY: Normal room temperature and moderate humidity will help these plants do their best. Do not let the temperature fall below 13 degrees in Winter.
SIZE: The species can grow up to 1.2 m in width and height.
PROBLEMS: If grown outside snail and slugs may be a problem, but when grown inside they are relatively pest-free.
