Light: Thrives in bright indirect light, but can tolerate medium to low indirect light. Brown spots on the leaves usually indicate the plant is getting too much light. Pale leaves, slow growth, and small new leaves indicate it is not getting enough light.

Temp: This plant prefers normal room temperatures between 60-80 degrees. Avoid cold drafts from windows, air conditioning vents, or doors. 

Water: Allow the top 50% - 75% of the soil to dry before watering again. 

Humidity: Average humidity; will benefit from a little extra humidity during winter months.

Toxicity: Toxic to pets

 

Trouble shooting

Crispy or curling pale leaves, dry potting mix: suggests plant is underwatered. 

Yellowing leaves, wet potting mix: indicates plant may be overwatered and/or root rot. 

Yellowing leaves, dry potting mix: indicates the soil may be compacted (need to aerate the soil) and/or nutrient deficiency.

Browning leaf tips: indicates the plant is underwatered (plant is sitting dry for an extended period of time) or lack of humidity. Another reason could be the plant is sensitive to the chemicals found in tap water. Use filtered water or leave the tap water in an open container a day before watering to allow some of the chemicals such as chlorine to evaporate.
