Plant Care: 

Light

  • Optimal: Bright, indirect light.
  • Avoid: Direct sunlight (can scorch leaves), low light (can cause slow growth and smaller leaves).

Watering

  • Frequency: Water when the top 1-2 inches of soil feels dry.
  • Method: Water thoroughly, allowing excess water to drain out.
  • Note: Reduce watering in winter but never let the soil dry out completely.

Humidity

  • Preferred Level: High humidity (60-80%).
  • Tips: Use a humidifier, mist the leaves regularly, or place the plant on a humidity tray.

Temperature

  • Ideal Range: 65-85°F (18-29°C).
  • Avoid: Drafts, sudden temperature changes, and temperatures below 60°F (15°C).

Soil

  • Type: Well-draining, peat-based potting mix.
  • Mix Recommendation: Combine regular potting soil with perlite and orchid bark for improved drainage.

Fertilization

  • Frequency: Every 4-6 weeks during the growing season (spring and summer).
  • Type: Balanced, water-soluble fertilizer diluted to half strength.
  • Pause: No fertilization needed in fall and winter.

Pruning

  • When: As needed.
  • How: Trim back any overgrown, leggy, or damaged leaves to maintain shape and encourage new growth.

Repotting

  • Frequency: Every 1-2 years, or when roots outgrow the pot.
  • Best Time: Early spring, before the active growing season.

Common Problems

  • Yellow Leaves: Overwatering or poor drainage.
  • Crispy Leaf Edges: Low humidity or underwatering.
  • Small Leaves or Slow Growth: Insufficient light or nutrients.
  • Pests: Check for spider mites, aphids, and mealybugs; treat with insecticidal soap if necessary.

Tips for Success

  • Maintain consistent moisture and high humidity.
  • Avoid direct sunlight and cold drafts.
  • Support climbing growth with a moss pole or trellis.
  • Regularly clean leaves to keep them dust-free and ensure efficient photosynthesis.
