  • Seasonally

    This indoor plant doesn't need much food, so twice a year is sufficient for its nutrient needs. Water one day before fertilizing. Fertilize once every six months by diluting a liquid fertilizer by half strength.

  • 3 Years

    When receiving the plant, do not repot immediately but wait at least 6-12 months or if the roots are beginning to get crowded and growing through the drainage holes.

    Repot in the spring, using a 2" bigger pot to keep the roots drier. (Too big of a pot could cause the soil to dry slower, which is not helpful.) Use a well-draining indoor potting mix with perlite to help with drainage.

    Water your plant in the old pot before transferring over and let it sit an hour. Place a piece of screening at the bottom of the container over the drainage hole to secure the soil and allow it to drain. Add soil to the bottom to elevate the root ball. Lift the plant and release the roots against the existing planter. Use a clean knife or garden trowel to wedge between the pot and the soil to loosen.

    Inspect the root ball. Notice if there are any dead or rotting roots and trim off with sterile pruners. If the plant is rootbound, cut through the roots to alleviate continued encircling.

    Ensure the plant is sitting about 1" below the edge of the pot to avoid water spillage. Add more soil and backfill around the sides by tamping down. Fill up to the soil line but not over.

    Water thoroughly, leaving the soil damp but not soggy. If settling occurs, add more soil.

  • Monthly

    To clean the leaves and alleviate dust particles, give it a shower from above. Fill a watering can with filtered, distilled or tap water that has been sitting for 24 hours. Place the plant in a sink and lightly wash the leaves with a shower spray end watering can. Trim off any brown leaf tips that may appear with sterile scissors. Remove any debris from the soil and replenish soil if needed. Inspect for any insects at this time.

  • Stem Cutting

    In the spring or summer, prune 3-4 inch stem cuttings from the parent plant. New shoots will break forth from the tip and sides. Mark on the stem, which is the top and base.

    Set the stems in a jar filled with filtered, tap, or rainwater and replace the water twice a week. After several weeks, you'll notice roots bursting through nodules on the bottom of the stem and swelling offshoots emerging through the upper parts of the stem.

    Once there is a sufficient root system, dip the ends in root hormone (mixed in water at a paste consistency) and place in damp, well-draining, moist potting soil mix and tamp down around the stem securing it.

    Use a container that has drainage and is deep enough for the roots to grow. Place the stem at least 1-2 inches down into the soil.

    Set it in bright, indirect sunlight while they are rooting.

    Check the moisture and humidity each day and add misting to keep the soil moist while the roots establish.

    After 6-8 weeks, roots will begin to establish. You can tug onto the stem to ensure the roots are secure.
