Grow indoors in a warm, humid environment in bright indirect light. Use a peaty soil-based potting mix and place in an area of high humidity. Water moderately in the growing season, less in fall to late winter. Pinching stem tips will keep the plant in a more compact form. It is easily propagated from stem cuttings, making sharing with friends a breeze, thus the common name of friendship plant.
This plant has no serious pest problems. Some pests could include mealybugs, spider mites, and aphids and mealybugs. Leaf spot and stem rot could occur.
