- Light: Place your Atom in bright, indirect sunlight. Avoid direct sunlight, as it can scorch the leaves.
- Watering: Keep the soil consistently moist but not soggy. Water when the top inch of soil feels dry. Overwatering can lead to root rot, so ensure good drainage.
- Humidity: These plants thrive in higher humidity, so misting the leaves or using a humidity tray can be beneficial, especially in dry indoor environments.
- Temperature: Maintain a room temperature between 65-80°F (18-27°C). Avoid sudden temperature drops and drafts.
- Fertilization: Feed your Atom with a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer every 4-6 weeks during the growing season (spring and summer).
- Pruning: Trim yellow or damaged leaves to encourage new growth and maintain the plant’s appearance.
