Health benefits

NASA recommended this plant in its famous clean air study for its natural capacity to remove toxins from its immediate environment. And, while most plants take away oxygen at night, this one gives it off during night hours, making it perfect for the bedroom.

Watering and feeding

During spring and summer months, keep his soil moist, but not wet, watering about once every 10-14 days. Over winter, allow it to dry out completely before watering moderately. As a general rule, this means once a month or so.

Living with pets and children

If ingested, can cause upset stomach among dogs and cats so best to keep it out of their reach.
