    Will bleach in full sun so not good for a south facing windowsill. Apart from this happy anywhere with reasonable light. The brighter the spot the more reds will come out in the leaves.

  • Temperature

    Not too fussy but keep above 12 celcius.

  • Water

    Pour water into the well of the leaves the compost can have a little not and then but the plant will drink from well.

    Rain water is best.

    A little bit of liquid feed can be mixed into the water (1/4 of normal dilution)

  • Tip

    Change the water in the well every week or two.
