LIGHT: This plant can survive with a large variety of light conditions but does prefer bright filtered light. Direct sunlight will burn the plant.
WATERING: Water thoroughly in the growing season, allowing the top of the soil to dry out before watering again. In winter water more sparingly.
NUTRIENT: Fertilize during the growing season with slow-release granules or with balanced liquid fertilizer. Don’t feed during Winter.
TEMPERATURE & HUMIDITY: Normal room temperature during warmer months of the year, with a cooler position for the resting months of Winter. This plant will tolerate moderate humidity.
SIZE: If grown outdoors this plant would have the potential to grow to 3 m, but grown in a pot it would be much smaller.
PROBLEMS: Pests that may be a threat to these plants are: red spider mites, whiteflies, and mealybugs.
SPECIAL CARE: If long trails on the plant are unwanted, pinch them back to produce a bushier plant. Stems may be tied to help them train upwards and if the plant needs to be re-potted do it in Spring after heavy pruning.
