Sowing, Seeds, Planting From spring to autumn, position plants in a brightly lit situation out of direct sunlight, such as on an east or west-facing windowsill. In the winter due to low light levels, a south-facing windowsill is suitable. The minimum temperature required is 18-24°C (65-75°F) by day and 16°C (60°F) by night. Avoid cold draughts and sudden changes in temperature.
Care Tips It is essential to provide humidity around the plant by standing the pot on a saucer filled with gravel. Keep the water level just below the surface of the gravel or aggregate.
