HEALTH BENEFITS

A great purifying houseplant that will make a statement and liven up any corner of your home. 

LOOKING AFTER THE PLANT 

Water every week or every two weeks depending on how dry the soil is. Keep the topsoil moist and mist the leaves during the warm season. During winter, water every two to four weeks and make sure to dry out between watering. They can be propagated through division and repot only every two years during spring. 

Use 2 parts peat and 1 part perlite for a peat-based potting mix and keep it within temperatures of 65 – 75°F and never below 60°F. Apply a diluted balanced fertilizer from April to October for every couple of weeks. Give them bright, indirect sunlight so an ideal location is a south or west-facing window with some shade. Make sure the air isn’t too dry by using a humidifier or pebble tray to help raise the humidity.
