Water freely during growth, mist spray plants occasionally and ensure plants have adequate ventilation. Prune only to keep plants to required size.

Sow February to April. Soak seed in warm water for 24 hours before sowing. Germinate at 20-30C (68 to 86F) on the surface of a good free draining, damp seed compost. Cover with a fine sprinkling of compost or vermiculite, and place in a propagator or seal container inside a polythene bag until after germination which usually takes 10-60 days. Do not exclude light at any stage as this is beneficial to germination.

Transplant when large enough to handle into 7.5cm (3m) pots of good quality compost, and grow on in cool, well lit conditions. POTTING ON; When well grown, pot on into 20-25cm (8-10in) pots and overwinter at 10-13C (50-55F) and keep just moist.
