Water frequently not gap and flood as recommended, moist and not saturated. Likes bimonthly fertilizer in Summer. Heliotrope so if potted rotate as needed. Very satisfying FAST growing, likes humidity if indoors. Use copper based organic fungicide if spots appear, very effective. Enjoy this gentle giant 🙂
