Caring for your plant

Light

Medium to medium high light.

Watering

Prefers quite dry conditions and won’t tolerate over-watering.

Pruning

If the plant gets too tall and leggy, cut off the top (which you can then plant into some fresh soil – it will root quite readily). Dormant buds from lower down the trunk will then produce new growth within a few months.

Feeding

Very little feed is needed – some dilute fertilizer added when you water the plants will be satisfactory

Pest & Diseases

Occasionally troubled by mealybugs. If you see them, remove them by cleaning the plant with a damp cloth or paper towel
