Plant Care*:

Temperature
Temperatures from 65 - 80°F (18 - 26°C) are ideal during spring and summer. Try around 55 - 60°F (13 - 15°C) for a month or two during winter (before spring) but no lower than 45°F (7°C) which may encourage blooms for late spring - summer.

Light
Plenty of bright light is needed during the active growing season. Direct sunlight during the day is fine for a couple of hours or so, but do avoid hot summer sun. A spot close to a window with the right balance of sunlight and shade is ideal.

Watering
While the plant is actively growing, you'll need to water the plant thoroughly (once the top soil has started to dry out). Just top the water up slightly during the Winter, only when the first top inch of soil becomes quite dry. Rainwater or distilled is best used for watering, especially in hard water areas.

Soil
A peat moss based potting mix with 2 parts peat moss and 1 part perlite is suggested.

Re-Potting
Repot once every 2 years.

Humidity
During the Summer extra humidity may need to be provided if the air becomes dry, with misting or a humidity tray. If you can, also avoid dry air from artificial heating during the Winter.

* Standard care recommendations - you may need to adjust based on your home or office environment.
