Marichu,

Water to wet the soil very well and then allow it to dry out a bit before watering again. When you water try to not get water on the leaves too much. Just wet the soil. Fertilize the plant monthly with a soluble plant food such as Miracle Grow or Peters following label instructions. Make sure it gets plenty of sunlight and it should do fine for you.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
