Care Guide


Medium to bright light is best but can also tolerate low light environments, making it perfect for those tricky corners that deserve a bit of greenery.


Water your plant when the soil is completely dry, allowing the water to run through the drainage holes. Letting it sit in water can cause root rot. We suggest watering every couple of weeks in Summer and less in Winter.


This plant is happy with average humidity.

Other Tips

Make sure to clean all leaves with a dry cloth – dust can affect its absorption of light. When watering it, avoid getting the leaves wet. During growing season you can feed your plant once a month with a balanced fertiliser. This however, is not essential as it's very low maintenance and slow growing. Research from NASA shows that this plant has the ability to remove toxins such as benzene and formaldehyde from the air within indoor spaces.



Toxic for pets and children if eaten.
