Main Points:

One of the best flowering plants for removing formaldehyde, benzene and ammonia from the environment.

Care:

Full-sun and semi-sun (bright light is essential to induce blooming).

Pests are a risk when the indoor air is too warm and dry.

During blooming, keep the root ball moist. Feed with a complete fertilizer weekly.

It prefers to be somewhat potbound in a standard container filled with humus-rich potting soil or a soil-less mix. Less frequent watering is required if grown using hydroculture or sub-irrigation.
