What other plant parents say
This plant is easy to maintain. Put 4 ice cubes in the pot and that’s all you need to do. Do not put in full light it will burn the plant.
this plant was pretty but the flowers died fairly quick and the leaves tend to brown quick even when taken good care of
Very sensitive to drafts or direct sunlight! Make sure to find the right spot in your house for her.
Grows VERY slow and I’ve never gotten it to bloom again once the first ones died off.
Very slow grower and has not bloomed again once the original blooms died off.
I’ve had it for a while and treated it badly... still going strong!
This plant doesn’t require a lot of care and always looks healthy.
Beautiful color, easy care, easy to split and share.

Most potting soils come with ample nutrients which plants use to produce new growth.
By the time your plant has depleted the nutrients in its soil it’s likely grown enough to need a larger pot anyway.
To replenish this plant's nutrients, repot your Painter's Palette after it doubles in size or once a year—whichever comes first.
