Water
Allow half of the soil to dry out in between waters, and reduce your watering further in winter, or in darker locations.

Food
Feed every four waters in the growing season, reduce to every six in autumn and winter.

Ideal temperature is 20-32°C; make sure it does not get colder than 12°C in winter.
