Light: Bright, indirect light will make this plant thrive. They can grow in a lower light, however it will stunt growth and take longer for the soil to dry out which can lead to overwatering.
Water: Allow the soil to almost completely dry out between waterings, the leaves will shrivel and feel less plump when this plant is thirsty. During the winter reduce watering considerably.
Food: During growing months apply a weak fertiliser once a month.
Humidity: Will tolerate a normal household humidity however for increased growth and bigger leaves an increased humidity will be ideal.
