Care Size & Guidance

Care Size & Guidance

There is no real need to repot this plant, as it needs little to no soil at all. If severely pot bound, it can be moved in a slightly larger pot which can be backfilled with a mix of bark, charcoal, sharp sand, and leaf mould. An orchid growth medium is also a good choice for this plant.

Keep it well watered in a high humidity environment (kitchen, bathroom), away from direct sunlight. Fertilise every other month with an organic balanced fertiliser diluted to half the strength.

Inspect periodically the plant for scale insects, as the plant is a favourite host for them.

Expert Tip

Avoid leaving water on the leaves and the crown. Mist the creeping rhizomes that want to escape the pot. This will provide the plant with much needed moisture.
