- LIGHT: Place in high light (southern exposure) in fall and winter, and medium light in spring and summer. Keep dark 12 hours a day from October 1 until bloom.
- WATER: Keep soil evenly moist except in fall; then, let it dry between waterings. Raise humidity.
- TEMPERATURE: Maintain temperatures in the low 70s during the day and no lower than low 50s at night, except between October 1 and bloom. Then, keep temperatures below 53 degrees all day.
Feed less in fall. Never move or turn plant once it's in bloom; it will drop buds and stop flowering. Propagate by stem cuttings or seed.
