Position in a warm room away from cold draughts and radiators, with a constant temperature above 16C (60F). Choose a bright position in good light, but away from the glare of very strong sun, which may scorch the leaves and dry out the roots during hot weather.
This plant is grown on porous lava rock which must be kept constantly moist to prevent the roots from drying out. On delivery, fill the tray with water and keep it permanently topped up. House plants should be fed regularly between March and September when they are in active growth. Add liquid fertiliser to the water once a month.
