Sunlight Place your plant in a place that receives indirect bright light.
Soil requires well-drained soil rich in organic matter.
Watering Water only when the soil feels dry to touch. Soil must never be allowed to dry out completely.
Application of Fertilizer Apply organic fertilizers during spring and rainy season. Loosen the soil without damaging the roots. It will help the plant to uptake the nutrients and moisture easily.
Repotting When a plant outgrows in the current pot, re-pot with fresh potting soil and some fertilizer. Do the repotting late evening and keep the plant in a shady area for 2 to 3 days and then move the plant in required light condition.
Wipe the dust from the leaves with a clean, damp cloth. Remove dead, decay and infected parts of the plant. For insect attack apply neem oil or any organic insecticide.
