A lush and versatile plant that will lend itself to a huge variety of locations and design plans. Can be readily placed in a light or dark spot. It's only shortfall is that it is sensitive to cold draughts, as well as overwatering.
We would strongly recommend the self-watering system for this plant, where its fast growing roots will find the in-built reservoir and almost completely remove any risk of over-watering.
Be mindful that the saponins can cause inflammation and is highly dangerous if ingested. Be aware that due to the cold sensitivity of these plants, there may be delays in delivery during the coldest months of the year. .
Check out our video below where Paul explains the incredible aspects of this fascinating plant.
Temperature Best to keep it warm. The leaves are directly connected to the roots, so when it rots it affects the entire plant. Will cope much better in the cold if it is dry, which is should be most of the time.
WateringWait until it is absolutely bone dry, then soak it completely. The time in between this will increase dramatically in winter. Too much water can easily have devastating consequences with this plant.
Feeding Only feed during the growing season, once a month or so.
Tips You won’t need to re-pot it until its physically breaking out of the pot. Once this happens, cut the pot off using a sharp stanley knife.
Light Level It prefers a bright spot to a dark spot, but will do well almost anywhere. A South facing room away from the cold window is best. If it's in a darker spot, it will need significantly less water.
