The Dirt

Native to South and Central America. These plants grow under the forests trees. Indirect sunlight is best but it can take direct light if it is only around 3hrs a day. Too much sun can burn the leaves brown. Try to not allow the soil to get bone dry, this plant likes moisture. Regular trimming will encourage the plant to grow.

Part Sun

This plant likes most rooms with windows facing west or east. You could place it in a spot away from a very sunny window – as light intensity goes down quick as you move away from the light source.


Water once a week. Before watering, feel the soil, top layer should be dry, if not dry wait a day or two. If the soil still is wet you risk giving the plant too much water, you don’t want it to rot.

Pet Toxic

Only when ingested it may cause mild oral and gastrointestinal upsetness. Keep out of reach from pets and small children.
