Water the soil in the container regularly, whenever the soil's surface feels dry to the touch. Slightly decrease watering frequency in winter, but do not allow the soil to dry out completely.

Maintain a daytime temperature around 75 degrees Fahrenheit and a nighttime temperature around 65 F for best plant growth.
