Check the soil for dampness once a week. If dry, add about a cup or two of water, keeping in mind that any excess will build up in the bottom and should be avoided. Avoid cold drafts for best results.

Plant Care Guide
Prefers bright, indirect light but can tolerate low light as well. Avoid direct sunlight.
Prefers soil to be moderately moist so check about once a week. Thrives in a moist environment with high humidity. Mist often.
Level of Care
Easy! Just avoid direct sunlight and don't let it dry out.
Nephthytis removes toxins that can build up in indoor spaces. A general rule of thumb is 1 medium houseplant per 100 square feet of space effectively cleans the air we breathe.
Feed with a mild liquid, indoor plant fertilizer about once a month during the growing season. Do not fertilize in winter.
Prefers warm conditions 65-80°F. Keep away from drafty windows and air conditioners.
A peaty All-Purpose potting soil with good drainage works best.
Pruning & Propagation
Prune yellow or damaged leaves down to stem. Mature plants sometimes look floppy so periodic pruning will improve appearance. To propagate, soak the ends of cuttings in water until roots form. Then repot.
Sorry! All parts of the plant are considered mildly toxic if consumed.
