Does best in good light, and will tolerate direct sunlight. It will cope with more moderate light levels, as long as it is not over watered
Needs very little water, especially in winter. The soil should be allowed to dry out between watering. Excess water may cause the stems to rot.
If the stems get leggy, the plant should be cut back to a leaf scar (an obvious line on the stem where old leaves were previously attached. This will encourage branching and bushy growth. Cut sections of the plant (including leaves) are easily rooted and will grow quite quickly into new plants
A little dilute fertilizer can be added to the water occasionally to maintain a deep green colour
Usually untroubled by pests. Any mealybugs or scale insects shouldbe physically removed as soon as they are spotted.
