- Light: Provide bright, indirect light to mimic its natural habitat. Avoid direct sunlight, which can scorch the leaves.
- Watering: Keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged. Water when the top inch of soil feels dry. Reduce watering in winter.
- Soil: Use well-draining, peat-based soil to prevent waterlogging and provide essential aeration.
- Fertilization: Feed every 4-6 weeks with a balanced liquid fertilizer during the growing season (spring and summer).
- Pruning: Trim yellow or damaged leaves regularly. Wear gloves, as the sap may cause skin irritation.
