Humidity

Your Drimia Exuviata will benefit from regular misting, especially in the winter when the air is dry.

Light

Your Drimia Exuviata will do well in medium to bright, indirect light. Too much direct sunlight can burn the leaves.

Soil

I have always used an all purpose potting mix that works fine.

Temperature

These plants prefer temperatures between 70°-80°F (21.1°- 26.7°C).

Watering

I would try and keep the soil slightly moist at all times and in the winter allow the soil to dry. You should be able to leave a Drimia Exuviata for up to a month during winter without water and no harm would be caused. Over-watering can kill these.

Fertilizing

Use a diluted complete liquid fertilizer during the spring and summer when the plant is growing. Take a break from feeding the houseplant during the colder months.

Propagation

Propagate Drimia Exuviata using cane cuttings.
