Lighting

Type D plants prefer a brightly lit spot with partial sunshine, but can cope with lower light spaces if watering is reduced. In the height of summer make sure plants aren’t scorched by direct sunlight as this can result in brown, washed out leaves. Turn the pot frequently to prevent leaves turning towards the light.

Watering

These plants prefer damp soil. Water thoroughly to prevent soil from drying out, but make sure it is never sitting in standing water as this can lead to root rot.

Soil

Type D plants prefer free draining, rich soil. If your pot doesn’t have drainage holes, be careful not to water too much to avoid excess moisture sitting around the roots, as this can lead to root rot.
