Need an open mineral, fast draining mix and the maximum amount of light
you are able to give them. The basic cultivation routine is: Stop
watering after flowering. Start watering after the old leaves completely
dry. (Usually late March or Early April) Water freely during the growing
season, soak the compost fully but allow it to dry out between
waterings. Some growers fertilize frequently, some hardly ever. Keep
them dry during the winter. Nearly all
problems occur as a result of overwatering
and poor ventilation especially when weather conditions are dull
and cool or very humid.
Propagation: From seed, with seed planting best in either
October or April.
