FEEDING/FERTILIZER REQUIREMENT

  • When the plant's actively growing, boost the soil's fertility by adding some compost, scratching it carefully into the top inch or two of soil without disturbing the plant's roots.
  • Feed the plant every two or three weeks with a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer such as a 10-10-10 formula, diluted at a rate of 1/4 teaspoon per gallon of water.

LIGHT REQUIREMENT

  • Protect it from too much sun (which could scorch its leaves) on hot summer days and, by moving the container into a partially shaded area, such as under tall trees.
  • Keep an indoor-grown plant in a spot that gets filtered light, such as near a lightly curtained south- or west-facing window.

WATER REQUIREMENT

  • Water the soil well.
  • Give the plant extra water during the dry season, aiming for at least 1 inch per week, including rain.
