Light It prefers lots of bright, indirect light, but it will also survive in much lower lighting conditions if it can get a little bright light in the morning or afternoon. Keep it protected from harsh midday sun if you live in a warmer climate.

Temperature Around 18-26°C / 65-79°F will encourage leaf growth and keep this plant at its optimium health. It will also tolerate cooler conditions, but no lower than 15°C / 59°F

Watering Overwatering is this plants biggest killer as its bulbous tubers are vulnerable to rot caused by a build-up of excess moisture. Water only when the top 3cm/1.5 inch of its compost are completely dry, and ensure good drainage
