Light: Provide indirect, bright light to maintain its exquisite leaf colors. Avoid direct sunlight, which can scorch the delicate leaves.
2. Watering: Keep the soil lightly moist, allowing the top inch to dry before rewatering. Overwatering can lead to root rot, so ensure proper drainage.
3. Humidity: Mimic its rainforest origins by maintaining moderate humidity levels. Regular misting or placing the pot on a humidity tray aids its well-being.
4. Fertilization: Feed with a balanced, diluted liquid fertilizer every 4-6 weeks during the growing season (spring and summer).
5. Pruning: Trim leggy growth to encourage bushiness and remove any dead or yellowing leaves to maintain its aesthetic appeal.
