Secrets of Success/Growing Details
Light: Indoors they like bright indirect sun in an east or north facing window. Outdoors their preferred situation is dappled brightness like under a porch.
Temperature & Humidity: Likes it warm. The ideal is 20℃, bring inside if the temperature is going below 10℃. They love an almost daily misting of water when the humidity is low.
Watering: Keep soil moist but not sopping wet, if it dries out too much the tips of the leaves will turn brown.
Plant Nutrition: Feed regularly with a liquid kelp fertilizer like Garden Pro's all purpose 10-10-10. This means every 2 weeks in the spring and summer and then reducing it to once a month in the winter.
Repotting: Repot in the spring if the roots fill the pot. Keep the crown above the level of the soil.
Special Problems: Brown tips, yellowing fronds and no new growth usually means the air is too dry. Solve this problem by using a small hand sprayer to mist the fronds daily or every second day.
