Bright Indirect Light
I thrive in areas of bright indirect light. But please keep me away from harsh direct sunlight as this will scorch my leaves. If you put me in a darker spot I will be more prone to root rot and overwatering problems.
Allow the top third of the soil to dry out completely between waterings. Why not pop your finger in to check the moisture level. If you've put me in a darker spot allow half of my soil to dry out between waterings to prevent root rot occurring.
Root rot is the most common problem. If you suspect this, you may see yellowing leaves, then it could be that my soil is waterlogged. Why not carefully take me out of my pot and inspect the roots. If they are yellow tinged and looking good then I'm doing well. If you find they are brown and mushy we have a problem.
