Care information

Origin: Native to Taiwan, known for my glossy, umbrella-like leaf clusters.

Light: Provide bright, indirect light. I thrive in filtered sunlight and can tolerate lower light conditions, but avoid direct sunlight which can scorch my leaves.

Humidity: I appreciate moderate to high humidity levels. Mist my leaves occasionally or place me near a humidifier to maintain humidity, especially indoors during dry seasons.

Watering: Allow my soil to dry out slightly between waterings. Water me thoroughly when the top inch of soil feels dry, but avoid overwatering to prevent root rot.

Soil: Plant me in well-draining, fertile soil. A mixture of peat moss, perlite, and standard potting soil works well to provide good drainage and nutrients.

Fertilization: Feed me with a balanced liquid fertilizer diluted to half strength every 4-6 weeks during the growing season (spring and summer). Reduce feeding in fall and winter when growth slows.

Pruning: Prune me to remove any yellowing or damaged leaves and to maintain my shape. Regular pruning can also help control my size and encourage bushier growth.

Propagation: I can be propagated from stem cuttings. Take a healthy cutting with a few leaves, place it in water or moist potting mix, and roots will develop within a few weeks.

Pests/Diseases: Watch out for pests like aphids, spider mites, and scale. Treat any infestations promptly with insecticidal soap. Ensure good air circulation to prevent fungal diseases.
