  • Best part of this species is that it tolerates low light, needs infrequent watering (maybe once a month), don’t let it sit in water, keep it out of direct sun and never use leaf shine. 

    Since it tolerates low light & dry air, it makes an excellent office plant.

    To sum it all up: ignore this plant and it’ll be happy.  


    For pet owners, please note it is toxic to dogs and cats
