This plant is huge water-lover! Try to keep the soil moist all the time. To check the humidity level, you may want to poke your finger into the substrate every couple of days or so. When the surface of the soil is dry, give your plant a drink.
A sun-lover. This plant requires a lot of direct and bright light. Open outdoor spaces work just fine. East, south, and west windows indoors are the best.
Feed your plant with a liquid fertilizer every two weeks during the blooming season.
