  • Maintenance of plant :

    The plant by itself requires minimal care, but you need to be aware of the fact that both the leaves and flower are highly toxic.


    The cooler the room, the longer the bloom! Make sure the plant is never placed in direct sunlight, else the buds would fall off.


    Plant the shrub in a soil rich with peat moss and in a clay pot which allows for good drainage.


    Immerse the plant in water for a minute in water once or twice a week.
