    Care Instructions

    Light

    Prefers bright, indirect light or filtered bright light

    Water

    Allow soil to completely dry in between watering. The succulent leaves will hold water. During warmer months, keep the soil moist.

    Temperature

    Average from 65°F - 75°F

    Feeding

    Follow a monthly fertilizing schedule when the plant is actively growing. In most cases, this is in the spring and summer. Use a balanced fertilizer - this means a ratio of NPK that is all the same. Ex: 10-10-10.

    Toxicity

    Non-toxic. Although, it is a great practice to keep your plants away from pets and children.

    Grooming

    Place the plant under a showerhead to remove any dust or debris.

    Care

    Provide a trellis for extra support and keep the plant appearing nice and tidy.
