What other plant parents say
Purchased a humidifier for my indoor plants hoping it will help them flourish, guide says this plant likes humidity. Misting wasn’t doing enough, grows faithfully I propagated it into three stalks. Will eventually group them together. It is a very low maintenance plant, I tend to talk to my plants each morning not sure that helps but this plant has been with me for 12 years.
