Bright Indirect Light

I like to be in a bright spot away from the sun's direct harsh rays. Try popping me a few feet back from a east or west facing window. However in winter I will benefit from an hour or two of direct sunlight to keep me happy and healthy. If I'm in a shadier spot then can you clean my leaves regularly with a damp cloth to keep dust at bay and allow me to capture the most sunlight possible, thanks! 

Regular Watering

Allow the top third of my soil to dry out between waterings - why not poke your finger in to check. Water me until you see it coming out of the bottom of my pot but don't leave me sitting in a puddle. 

Remember to wipe down my leaves with a damp clean cloth to prevent dust build up to help me breathe. 

High Humidity

Think Southeast Asian rainforest! Keep my leaves moist and I'll be happy. Pop me in a bright bathroom or kitchen and spritz me regularly. Grouping plants together so I can be near my friends will also increase humidity. Why not give me a shower once in a while to wash the leaves and give me a good drink.  

Fun facts

I can grow up to 3 meters high with a spread up to 1 meter across. However don't worry it will take me 5-10 years to reach that size - but what a beauty I'll be hey!
