LIGHT: Prefers bright, filtered light, but the plants are highly light-tolerant.
WATER: The plant can survive long periods of drought. Water it monthly or less in winter; water it weekly or every other week in summer.
COMMON MISTAKES: Under- watering or watering a small amount too frequently. The result of frequent, less-than-full watering is that the roots die off near the bottom of the pot, leaving short roots above. The best method is to water the pot fully and let it dry down before watering again.
