Water: These plants have medium water requirements. thoroughly water these plants when the top few inches of soil is dry. These may be thirsty hosueplants but they still like to dry out a little in between waterings.
Soil: Most peat-based potting soil mixes will be adequate but make sure they don't contain water retentive crystals as they can cause the soil to continually stay moist causing root rot.
Temp: These are tropical plants so they like warmer temps. Average room temp above 65 degrees is fine but don't mind it warmer. avoid placing these plants near exterior doors or drafty windows and vents, especially in colder months. make sure to avoid placement near air conditioning in the warmer months.
Humidity: High humidity is a must-have for these plants. The leaves may begin to curl or edges will brown and dry out if they do not have enough humidity.
