    • Prefers higher humidity to prevent leaf edges from browning.
    • Feed once per month at half strength when plant is actively growing.
    • Protect furniture when watering.
    • This is a versatile plant that can grow to as much as 25 feet tall in the wild. In your home you can have windowsill sized plants up to six foot tall. Do not expect to see flowers on indoor plants.
    • It will grow best with bright light, and will benefit from direct sun indoors so provide an eastern or western exposure window, or even southern. 
    • Keep the soil moist, but allow the soil to dry to 1 to 2 inches deep into the soil before watering again. They like to be moist, but not wet.
    • It can withstand some mild drought stress once established, but keeping it evenly moist would be ideal. Soil must be well-drained.
