Care tips: It prefers well-draining potting soil, and a pot with drainage holes, or with some pebbles/small stones, to create space for water to drain. Allow the soil to dry out between waterings, water freely in summer and less in autumn and winter months. Droopy leaves are a sign of not sufficient watering. Wipe the leaves regularly, as they accumulate dust. Turn the plant around weekly, to prevent it from becoming lopsided.
