Water Polkadot-plantTenere asciutto
Water sporadically, with 2-3 glasses of water , leaving the soil dry for a few days before watering again; when watering we suggest avoiding excesses, but to wet the substratum well. Let's act every 1-2 weeks . Let's remember to empty the plant saucers after watering, to avoid that stagnant water could damage the roots.

We suggest to position the The Polkadot-plant in a sunny spot at least a few hours a day. We advise cultivating the The Polkadot-plant in a covered place, in an apartment or green house, as they don't like temperatures below 15įC: during late Spring they can be moved outdoors.Let's position the plants where they can enjoy a good source of light,yet avoiding direct sunshine, which could cause antiaesthetic burnings on the foliage.
