Light: Prefers bright, indirect light. It can tolerate lower light conditions, but too much direct sunlight may cause the leaves to scorch.

Temperature: Thrives in temperatures between 65-75°F. Avoid exposing it to temperatures below 50°F as it can be sensitive to cold drafts.

Water: Allow the top inch of soil to dry out between waterings. Prefers slightly moist soil but is susceptible to root rot if overwatered. Water thoroughly when watering and ensure proper drainage.

Humidity: Prefers moderate humidity levels. Regular misting or placing the plant near a humidifier can help maintain adequate humidity levels, especially during dry winter months.

Soil: Use a well-draining potting mix, such as a peat-based mix amended with perlite or sand.

Fertilization: Feed every 4-6 weeks during the growing season (spring and summer) with a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer diluted to half strength. Avoid fertilizing in fall and winter when growth slows down.

Pruning: Trim off any leggy or damaged growth as needed to maintain a compact and bushy appearance.

Propagation: Can be easily propagated from stem cuttings. Simply cut a healthy stem with several leaves, remove the bottom leaves, and place the cutting in water or moist soil until roots develop.

Toxicity: Non-toxic to pets and humans, making it safe to have around your furry friends.
