  • Avoid keeping in dark places.
  • Wait until the soil has dried out a little and then water again.
  • The soil should never be saturated or boggy as this will lead to rotting.
  • Apply a feed twice a year at most and for an older plant or that single leaf is throwing out new shoots you can feed a little more.
  • Young plants with only one leaf should start to be re-potted when there is new growth.
