Too much indirect light. Tolerates well a few hours of weaker sun.


We suggest watering frequently in summer and moderately in winter. In summer: Do not let the soil dry. Water with little water, but always. In winter: Watering will be less frequent, as the earth will take longer to dry. So there is no risk of root rot at this time, let the earth dry at least 1/2 before watering.


Use a clean, damp sponge or cloth to gently clean the leaves It is normal for the lower leaves to turn yellow and fall. The plant displaces nutrients from these leaves to new leaves in formation.
