Plant Care 

Light: Bright indirect light. 

Watering: Let the soil dry out between waterings, as these plants don't like to be too moist. Cut back on watering in wintertime. 

Temperature: These plants will go dormant at around 10C and lose their leaves and flowers. Anything below that can be fatal to the plant. 

Potting: A quick draining mix is suitable -our Sandy Loam is a great choice for this plant.

Hot tips:  Sometimes, these plants will throw a fit and loose their bracts due to stress, but not to fret they will grow back quickly in warm weather. Be sure to give this plant something to climb up as they can be vigorous growers. 

Pet Friendly: YES
