Care information

Origin: Native to Central and South America, I'm prized for my velvety foliage.

Light: Provide bright, indirect light. I thrive in filtered sunlight or partial shade, but can tolerate lower light conditions. Avoid direct sun, which can scorch my leaves.

Temperature: Keep me warm and humid, ideally between 65°F to 80°F.

Humidity: I appreciate high humidity levels. Mist my leaves regularly or place me near a humidifier to maintain humidity.

Watering: Keep my soil evenly moist but not waterlogged. Water me when the top inch of soil feels dry, and ensure good drainage to prevent root rot.

Soil: Plant me in a well-draining, peat-based potting mix.

Fertilization: Feed me with a balanced liquid fertilizer diluted to half strength every 2-4 weeks during the growing season (spring and summer). Reduce feeding in fall and winter.

Pruning: Prune me sparingly to maintain my shape and remove any leggy or damaged stems. Pinching back stems encourages bushier growth.

Propagation: I can be propagated from stem cuttings. Take a cutting from a healthy stem with a node and propagate in water.

Pests/Diseases: Watch out for pests like aphids, mealybugs, and spider mites. Treat any infestations promptly with insecticidal soap.
