     Plant care :

The plant prefers to be grown in full sun, but it can tolerate partial shade. In terms of watering, it is important to keep the soil evenly moist, but not waterlogged. Allow the top inch of soil to dry out before watering the plant again. It is also a good idea to fertilize the plant regularly with a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer.
