Very hearty, require little maintenance, easy to grow. Water regularly, let soil dry between watering. They will sunburn if they are suddenly moved from subdued lighting to full sun, thus move gradually to avoid sunburn.

The more direct the light the leaves change from total green to a rim of reddish brown on the leaves which is fine. Be careful outside in direct noon day sun that can burn the leaf. Leaves grow back if lost to drought, too much sun or cold.
