PLANTING: Plant in free draining soil in a shaded location, indoor plants should be rotated for optimum health. Mulch after planting to retain moisture and regulate soil temperatures as the young plant establishes.

Re-pot container plants only if they are outgrowing their pots. Protect from Frost.
