The 'Massangeana' prefers to be kept evenly moist, but not waterlogged. Water thoroughly when the top inch of soil feels dry to the touch, and be sure to drain any excess water from the saucer to prevent root rot. In the winter months, reduce watering frequency to allow the soil to dry out slightly between waterings. We recommend measuring the moisture of the soil with a moisture meter.
This plant can tolerate a range of light conditions, from low to medium, indirect light. However, it prefers bright, indirect light and may start to show signs of stress in very low light conditions. Direct sunlight can scorch the leaves, so be sure to keep it away from windows that receive direct sun.
To keep your 'Massangeana' looking its best, fertilize it every 2-3 months during the growing season (spring and summer) with a balanced, water-soluble or liquid fertilizer. Be sure to follow the package instructions for dilution and frequency.
This plant does not need to be repotted frequently, but if it outgrows its container or the soil becomes compacted, it may benefit from repotting. Choose a pot that is slightly larger than the current one, and use a well-draining potting mix. Gently remove the plant from its current container, loosen any tightly bound roots, and place it in the new pot at the same soil level as before. Water thoroughly and allow the plant to adjust to its new home.
