Cultural Notes: Will grow outdoors in tropical humid climates where it can reach up to 15m. In cooler climates it is perfect for pots which can be kept on patios, verandahs and most commonly indoors. Avoid overwatering by allowing a drying out time between waterings. Likes humidity. Feed in spring or summer. Commonly used as an indoor plant in offices, apartments and shopping malls. Young plants are single stemmed and branching increases with subsequent flowering episodes.
