Plantation

  3. Spacing: Provide at least 3-4 feet of space between plants to allow for proper growth.

Growing

  1. Temperature: 60-75°F (15-24°C) for optimal growth.
  2. Humidity: Maintain a humidity level of 40-50% for indoor plants. Mist the leaves occasionally to increase humidity.
  3. Fertilization: Apply a balanced liquid fertilizer (10-10-10) every 4-6 weeks during the growing season.

Care

  1. Pruning: Trim back leggy branches to maintain shape and encourage bushy growth.
  2. Pest Control: Check regularly for common pests like spider mites, scale insects, and mealybugs. Treat with insecticidal soap or neem oil if necessary.
  3. Repotting: Repot every 2-3 years, increasing the pot size by 1-2 inches each time.

Important Tips

  • Avoid moving the plant frequently, as it may cause leaf drop.
