  • Light Requirements: Thrives in bright, indirect light but can tolerate lower light conditions. Avoid direct sunlight, which may scorch the leaves.

While generally resistant to pests and diseases, keep an eye out for spider mites and scale insects. Treat promptly with insecticidal soap if infestation occurs.
