Light: Bright, indirect light. Approximately 650-850 foot candles. Plants can take higher light levels as they mature.

Water: The soil should be allowed to dry slightly between watering. On a scale of 1-5 moisture levels should remain as close to a 3 as possible.

Humidity: Medium to high. Keep above 40%, with 70-80% humidity being ideal. If you live in an area with low humidity, add a humidity tray or mist several times a week.

Fertilizer: Use a dilution of 20-10-20 or 20-20-20 applied every other watering. Higher fertilizer levels may attract pests.
