Light: Direct Sun
One of the few indoor plants that prefers direct sun. Best directly in front of an unobstructed South or West window.
Water roughly every 10-14 days. Likes to dry out a couple inches between waterings - be careful not to overwater.
Soil: A well draining indoor mix with lots of perlite and worm castings
Toxicity Level: Toxic to animals if ingested.
Additional Information: Leaves tend to collect dust - wipe with a wet microfiber cloth or soft duster monthly. Splitting leaves is normal - splits are an evolutionary adaptation of the plant that allow wind to pass through the leaves.
