temperature

60ºF (15ºC) to 82ºF (28ºC). They can survive short dips to the low 30s, but they are not frosted tolerant. Avoid hot or cold drafts.

light

Bright, indirect sunlight. Can tolerate lower light quite well.

watering

Water once the top half-inch of soil is dry. Small amounts of water at a time, rather than completely dousing the soil, reduces the risk of root rot.

soil

Extremely well-draining potting mix. Equal parts peat, perlite, and compost works well.

Propagation

Best propagated by division while actively growing.

Toxicity

Toxic if ingested by humans or animals. Sap can also cause skin irritation.

Fertilizing

Feed every two weeks while actively growing with a ½-dilution of a balanced formula. Flush the soil every few months to prevent salt build-up.
