Current Pot Size: 50mm
Light: Category 5-7 (please see our blog on plant light requirements)
Soil: Aroid mix (please see our blog on soil requirements)
Fertiliser: As directed on your fertiliser of choice. Fortnightly or monthly during the growing season
Watering: Don't over water, they like to dry out between waterings.
Maintenance: Prefers low light. Cut back foliage to keep compact and promote new growth points. Cut back flower spikes to promote continuous foliage growth.
Flowers: Yes but not acquired for their flowers. The non-fragrant, white, frayed flowers emerge from the centre of the rosette of leaves. Over a couple of months these spikes elongate, reveal their buds and flower for a month or two. Once flowered, new growth will generate at the base, the flowered growth will die away.
