Plant is poisonous if ingested so do not keep it around children. Mist frequently with warm water (lime free to avoid leaf staining). Place pebbles or gravel in the drainage dish to hold water and increase the humidity, make sure the pot is sitting on the gravel and not in the water. Good drainage is a necessity.
