    - Do not hesitate to spray water on its foliage if the air becomes dry.
    - Ideally, place it in a darker room and avoid placing it in direct sunrays.
    - Water with moderation, and let the soil getting dry between watering.
    - In the spring and the summer, every fortnight, give it a liquid fertilizer especially suited to green plants.
    - Expect and foresee an annual repoting, to be done in the spring into a slightly bigger pot.
    - After a few years, a surfacing should replace one every other repoting.
