Step 8: Maintenance


Gardening is more art than science.

How to Water:
Soak the soil completely with each watering.
Allow the soil to completely dry between watering.  Shriveling is a sure sign it's time to water.
Mist regularly or keep a small tray of water nearby if in a low-humidity environment (e.g., indoors).

How to Fertilize after First Year:

Fertilize with a fish emulsion twice a year following the directions on the bottle.

How Much Sunlight:

Keep in the shade if outdoors (min temp 45F).
Keep near a sunny window but out of direct sunlight if indoors.

How to Remove Hard Water Spots:

Mist HEAVILY with distilled water.
