Dumb Cane Compacta Care Guide
I prefer bright, indirect light but can tolerate light shade. Lower light levels reduce the rate of growth and dull my leaves, but direct sunlight will scorch them.
When the top inches of my soil start to dry out, give me a drink, but don't overwater me.
My ideal temperature is between 18-24°C but I can cope with as low as 10°C for short periods. Keep me away from draughts.
I'm not too hungry, so will only want a weak dose of fertiliser during growing season.
Wipe my leaves with a damp cloth to remove accumulated dust.
If I'm growing too tall, or looking a bit unkempt, trim my stems with sharp shears.
