Provide me with at least 4-6 hours of direct sunlight a day and I will love you forever. Try and keep me away from the harsh midday heat to prevent sun scorch. If you can't read a newspaper where I am then it's too dark for me. No north facing rooms please as in winter I won't get enough light.
I thrive on neglect! Please let at least half my soil to dry out between waterings. Water me thoroughly until the water comes out from the bottom of the pot but please don't leave me to sit in a puddle. During the colder winter months reduce watering to minimal as I will be going into my dormant phase.
Average room humidity is great for me so no need for extra misting or spritzing. One less thing to worry about hey!
When repotting only do it if absolutely necessary and only go one pot size up at a time. I can usually stay in the same pot for 3 years before you need to move me to a bigger size.
