Cultural Notes: Can be grown outdoors in warm, tropical areas but need a sheltered position with good light. In cooler climates, try to choose a position near a window where there is bright, filtered light. Do not allow the leaves to come in to contact with the glass and avoid direct hot sunlight. Also, choose a draft-free position away from heaters. Keep the soil mist but ensure water drains away easily. Over-watering will induce root rot. Use a good quality controlled release fertiliser in spring and supplement this with an occasional liquid feed. Remove old leaf stems by cutting off at the base.
