Green Thumb Guide

Performs best in well-drained soil. Allow soil to dry in between watering. Tolerates little watering most of the year, performs best with more frequent watering during our hot, dry summers. Feed monthly, during spring and summer, with a general houseplant fertilizer. Deadhead old stalks to encourage more growth. Move indoors if there is a danger of frost.
