Watering

Wait until the top layer of soil is dry before watering. Do not over-water, soil should be moist and not soggy. Reduce the amount given during the winter months but do not let it dry out completely. Misting is really important for this plant and it will thrive when misted weekly or if planted in a pot with no drainage holes, mist more frequently
