    I grow to: 1.8m high, 1.2m wide

  • How to water me
    I am very forgiving and don't need too much water because I can store water in my leaves. A good rule of thumb is to give me a drink when my leaves start to pucker ever so slightly. 

    Soil PH
    I will do my best with a soil PH level between 5.5-6.5; you can read more about the importance of PH levels here

    Potting needs
    I really like a good quality potting mix and will do well in a 170mm pot. 

    Tips and tricks
    I wouldn't say I like being repotted often and will flower better if I am in a tight spot. If you wanted to keep me nice and neat, you could give me a prune. Just be sure not to cut off the dead flower heads because new flowers will continue to grow from the same spot.  I look good cascading down a shelf, or if you want me to stand upright, give me a bit of support using a fancy plant stake. Keep an eye out for Mealybugs; they do love me see how to get rid of me.
