Origin - Phillipines
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!
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.
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.
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!
