Water rarely, about once every 1-2 weeks with 2-3 glasses of water , keeping the soil dry for a few days before watering again; when wetting we suggest avoiding surpluses, however to wet the soil deep down. Let's remember to empty the plant saucers after watering, to avoid that stagnant water could damage the roots.
