Suits our Medium Pot range.
Plant Size: D17cm H75cm
Keep her in a bright spot but out of direct sunlight so you don't burn the leaves. She will be happy in a shadier spot too.
Keep her soil moist but don't over saturate her. Water when the top couple of inches of soil are dry. When you water her, make sure you drain out the water from the nursery pot to avoid her sitting in a puddle and getting root rot.
She loves moist air so if she isn't getting enough humidity you could try misting her, putting a bowl of water near her or putting her close to other plants to create their own micro climate.
She's non toxic to cats and dogs.
