Basic Care Requirements:

Water: Water your plant when the top layer of the soil is dry. Allow your plant to soak up the water for an hour and remove the excess water that may still be in the drip tray. 

Light: Keep in a spot with direct sun as it will bring out the purple tones whereas less direct light will fade the purple

Soil: Standard free draining high-quality indoor plant mix

Humidity: A place like a bathroom or a kitchen that offers high humidity is ideal for this plant. You can place it on a shallow pebble tray filled with water and mist regularly to create a humid environment. Browning leaves can be a sign of low humidity. 

Fertilizer: Use a balanced fertiliser once a month during Spring and Summer.

The Dyna Gro Pro-TeKt is a recommended supplement that encourages cellular growth and strengthening that will aid your plant in protecting itself against pests.

This is available in our 'Plant Food' section of the website.
