These plants love humid conditions so sitting them on a pebble tray is a must.
Keep the soil moist throughout the spring and summer but do not let the plant sit in water. Feed monthly during the growing season and decrease watering in the winter. These plants have a natural dormancy period when the leaves will fade and die - do not water during this time, just allow the rhizome to recover its strength and moisten the soil occasionally.
Important - do not cover the top of the rhizome with soil - this may cause it to rot
